Photovoltaic Power Generation, New Bright Spot Of China & Pakistan Cooperation
- May 04, 2018 -


     Recently, more and more schools in Brazil's southern Dahe have introduced photovoltaic power generation equipment. Andre Lemes, director of the state's Education Hall, said this could reduce energy consumption and be an important means of sustainable development and also enable students to understand the importance of solar energy. Photovoltaic power into the campus has become a microcosm of the rapid development of Brazil's photovoltaic industry.

      Brazil solar association data show that in 2017, the cumulative installed capacity of the Brazil photovoltaic system achieved great leap forward development, from 87.7 megawatts to 1 GW, enough to supply 2 million households. Last November, the largest solar Park in Latin America was built in the northeastern Brazil, in which 930 thousand solar panels were installed in the park with a capacity of 292 megawatts. However, despite the strong expansion, compared with other countries, photovoltaic power generation in Brazil is still in its infancy, currently only accounts for nearly 1% of Brazil's total generating capacity.

      Brazil has long relied on hydroelectric power. Due to the vast territory of Brazil, the energy center is far away from the load center, and the cost of hydropower transmission and distribution is relatively high. Some analysts pointed out that in 2017, Brazil's economic bottom stabilized, and the future electricity demand will continue to increase. Brazil media said that with the continuous development of global photovoltaic technology, the cost of photovoltaic power generation in Brazil has been greatly reduced, and will be highly competitive in the future. In fact, Brazil has a unique advantage in developing photovoltaic industry. Most of Brazil is located in tropical areas with long sunshine duration and strong intensity. It is estimated that by 2040, photovoltaic power generation in Brazil will account for 32% of its total electricity generation.

      In order to attract more enterprises to participate in the development of photovoltaic industry, the government of Brazil adopts incentive policies such as the auction system of solar energy projects, tax deduction and exemption, and so on, to strengthen investment. In the next 10 years, the photovoltaic industry in Brazil will usher in rapid development. A recent report by the United Nations noted that developing countries have invested more in renewable energy than developed countries, including China, India and Brazil, which account for more than half of the global renewable energy investment in 2017. Brazil's investment amounted to US $6 billion, of which about US $2 billion 100 million was invested in solar energy.

      Rodrigo Savaya, chairman of the board of the Brazil solar Association, told reporters: "although Brazil's photovoltaic power has fallen behind for 15 years, we have enough potential to be one of the world's leading countries through continuous efforts. China has a relatively high level of development in this field, and Bazhong has reason to continue to strengthen cooperation. "

      In recent years, China and Pakistan have increased their cooperation in the field of photovoltaic industry. Chinese enterprises such as ATS solar, BYD and other Chinese enterprises have invested in Brazil successively, bringing in advanced technology and providing urgent employment opportunities for the local people.

      The Chinese Consulate General in St Paul, Brazil, has received an interview with this reporter, saying that Brazil has always attached importance to ecology and environmental protection, which is the most important renewable energy market in the world. It is also one of the most dazzling photovoltaic power markets in Latin America. In recent years, China's new energy enterprises have gradually increased their attention and investment to the Brazil market. It is believed that with the continuous deepening of the exchanges between the two governments and the industry, renewable energy will become a bright spot and a new growth point for China and the Brazil cooperation.

      Last year, the Chinese photovoltaic enterprise was officially established strategic cooperation with Brazil Mato Grosso State Development Center. Wang Yingchun, President of Zheng Xin photoelectric, told reporters that China has maintained a high contribution rate to global renewable energy growth. Especially in the field of solar energy, Chinese manufacturing capacity in the global solar energy consumption and solar panel occupy half of the country, coupled with the "The Belt and Road" initiative and all-round cooperation between the BRIC countries to deepen, for investment in Brazil has laid a good foundation.
