Distributed Generation (DG), a concept that is expanding in Brazil and around the world, is at the heart of our sustainable energy future. It involves the production of electrical energy near or at the point of consumption, eliminating the need for long transmission and distribution networks. With the advancement of renewable energy technologies such as solar and wind, GD promotes a range of benefits including energy efficiency and resiliency.
Since the Industrial Revolution, the world's energy system has focused on the use of fossil fuels to generate energy and keep the entire production chain moving. Over time, this dependence has generated global shocks and geopolitical consequences, as countries that own oil wells centralize power due to the need for other nations to buy this commodity.
