According to the GWEC, wind power is making the most progress in Brazil, within the Latin American region. Total installed capacity in Latin America grew by 50% during 2010, and more than 2,000 MW of wind power is now operating across the region. The organisation has reported that, at the end of 2010, 930 MW of wind capacity was in operation in Brazil and that the project pipeline amounts to more than 4,000 MW up to 2013. The Brazilian wind market grew by 326 MW in 2010, a growth of 54.2% in terms of total installed capacity, and a 23.8% increase in terms annual capacity additions.
Brazil has tremendous potential for wind energy the GWEC says, underpinned by growing electricity demand and a solid industrial and grid infrastructure. The GWEA says that the Brazilian wind market has now reached a stable pace of growth.
Total installed capacity is forecast to reach 1,000 MW during the first few months of 2011.
