    The energy that comes from the wind

    May 13, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      With almost 11,000 kilometers of coastline, Brazil is beginning to make better use of the opportunity to make energy and money with wind. Its 777 wind farms spread over 12 states reached 21.03 gigawatts of installed power last year. The data are from the Brazilian Wind Energy Association (ABEEólica). As a result of investments of US$ 35.8 billion since 2011, the country rose one position in the ranking of markets with the most installed power reaching seventh place with 3% share.

      At the top, China with 39%, followed by the United States with 17% and Germany with 8%. The numbers are celebrated by the industry, but also by other sectors that see in wind energy several benefits such as the fact that it is clean and renewable, besides contributing to the reduction of expenses with the electricity bill. According to the entity, each R$ 1 invested in a wind farm generates an impact of R$ 2.9 on the GDP, after 10 to 14 months of the investment made.

      "This is proof that, besides being a renewable energy, wind energy also has a strong component of heating up economic activities in the regions where parks, factories and the entire chain of its industry arrive," said Elbia Gannoum, President of ABEEólica.
