Brazil Solar Energy Conference 2016

BSEC 2016

The Brazilian Government is firmly committed to renewable energy. Dedicated solar energy auctions were launched in 2014 to help roll out utility scale solar, while net metering legislation is in place to promote rooftop solar. BSEC 2015 focused on this emerging sector for Brazil, focusing on the unique characteristics of the Brazilian market, including the most appropriate financing options for Brazil's very specific economic and legal backdrop.

BSEC 2016, taking place on 12-13 April, is a high level conference which aims to contribute to policy in the Brazilian solar market as it develops. The conference offers insightful information, informed debate and extensive networking opportunities (including a networking dinner and a dedicated speed networking session).

More information on the 2016 conference will be available soon. Meanwhile, the 2015 conference can be explored at
