    Brazil adds 625 MW of new renewable power capacity in Nov

    December 9, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      December 9 (Renewables Now) - Brazil connected 1,030 MW of new power capacity to the grid in November, with 625 MW coming from wind, solar and hydro sources, power sector watchdog Aneel announced on Thursday.

      Among the non-hydro renewable sources, solar farms were responsible for the majority with 314.1 MW, or 30.5% of the total newly installed capacity in November, while wind parks accounted for 271 MW.

      This is the second-highest level of capacity addition in a single month this year, Aneel pointed out.

      The agency also said that Brazil’s small hydropower plants (HPPs) brought 40 MW to the grid last month, with thermal parks adding the remaining 404.8 MW.

      Since the beginning of the year, Brazil's power generation capacity has grown by 7,046.2 MW across all its power sources.

      Currently, clean energy sources represent as much as 83.16% of the total produced in Brazil, the regulator noted.
