Biomass powered thermoelectric plants: understand the growth of this model!
According to CCEE, in May 2021, thermoelectric plants that used sugarcane bagasse accounted for 33% of the energy supply coming from thermoelectric plants. Waste that was once a problem for the producer is now a source of renewable energy generation. Biomass-powered thermoelectric plants, such as sugarcane bagasse, wood and forestry industry residues, have a high […]
Volume of MSW projects surprises for first auction
The A-5 new energy auction scheduled to be held on September 30, 2021, led to the registration of almost 94 GW. According to data released by the Energy Research Company (EPE), the largest registered sources were solar, followed by natural gas and wind power. At the event, the Solid Urban Waste (RSU) model was also highlighted, which debuted in the auction in a positive way. There were 315 MW registered in RSU projects, totaling 0.33%.
The importance of solar energy in the renovation of the energy matrix
What is the importance of solar energy in the renovation of the energy matrix? Brazil entered the list of the ten countries that most installed solar energy systems in the world in 2020, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). This number is relevant since, last year, the economy had a retraction in several sectors due to the pandemic.
The evolution of Distributed Generation in Brazil!
In a simplified way, distributed generation is the possibility for Brazilian consumers to generate their own electricity, either from renewable sources or qualified cogeneration. The standard came into effect in 2012, through ANEEL Normative Resolution No. 482/2012.
Main Technologies for Solar Energy
What are the main solar energy technologies? The benefits of using alternative energy sources are already widespread. However, one of the major obstacles for this model to grow even more is the cost of systems and limited technological availability.
