10 PV POTENTIAL IN BRAZIL Annual average of incident solar energy: 1,500 to 2,300 kwh/m 2 /a Annual variability < 20% for most of the country Capacity factors between 14 and 17% Annual productivity between 1,300 kwh/kwp and 1,800 kwh/kwp

11 WIND ENERGY POTENCIAL AND INSTALLED CAPACITY Potential of more than 143,000 MW Only large systems (~ 1,500 MW in 73 wind farms) 3 bids already made (2009, 2010, and 2011) and one being prepared Prices ~ R$ /MWh (US$ 56) 2 manufacturers already installed and 2 in installation

12 BIOMASS POTENTIAL (GWh/year) SUGAR-CANE AGRICULTURE RESIDUES LUMBER RESIDUES VEGETABLE OILS

13 HYDROELECTRIC POTENTIAL (MW) AVAILABLE USED

14 OCEAN ENERGY Region GW Northern + Maranhão 1 27 Northeastern 2 22 Southeastern 2 30 Southern 2 35 Brazilian potential Tidal only 2 Wave

15 BRAZILIAN MARKET FOR SOLAR WATER HEATING Residential sector with high income (one and multi familiar) and hotels Swimming pool heating Some programs for the low income residential sector Market dominated by conventional plane collectors with glass cover Market for polymeric collectors mainly for swimming pool heating Several cities adopted local laws locales which oblige the installation of solar heating systems in new residences : millions m² 4,367 MW th

16 STATUS OF PV IN BRAZIL Good industrial Silicon production but no electronic-grade or solar-grade Silicon No PV cells production One company manufacturing modules A good stationary and automotive battery industry but no special deep-cycle batteries Some industries able to produce system components (power electronics), if there is a market Few companies selling PV modules and systems components Very few companies able to develop and implement projects Some research groups working with PV, but not as many as needed Approximately 30 MWp installed in isolated systems More than 500 kw installed in small grid-connected systems 1 MW grid-connected PV plant (MPX) R&D projects for grid-connected PV plants (24.5 MWp)
