Demand for Alternative Energy in Brazil may Double
Brazil's electricity regulator may reduce transmission and distribution rates by up to 50% for renewable energy which, Paulo Toledo, the director of power trader Ecom Energia believes could double demand from SMEs.
Small-scale hydro generators should benefit the most from the measure since they can provide a stable energy supply. Power supply from biomass generation in Brazil is dependent on the agricultural cycle, and wind power is more expensive, Toledo said.
