SolarPower Europe's "Global Market Outlook for Solar Power 2022-26” report, launched in Munich during the Intersolar Solar event, paints a sunny picture for solar throughout the world, especially Latin American market.
In 2021, Latin America's PV capacity additions increased by 44%, totaling 9.6 GW, with cumulative capacity of more than 30 GW. The region's solar market has grown more than 40 times since 2015. Projections suggest that by 2026, it could grow by up to 30.8 GW per year. In this incredible success story, one country emerges as a rising star: Brazil.
Latin America's solar leader is set to become one of the top five global markets in the next five years, reaching 54 GW total solar capacity by 2026, according to SolarPower Europe.
As of April 2022, Brazil had surpassed 15 GW of total installed solar, with over 5 GW added in 2021 alone. Distributed-generation systems account for 10 GW of installed capacity, and large-scale solar PV power plants for 5 GW. Distributed generation registered record growth in 2021, but that may well be surpassed in 2022.
However, the country still faces problems including high taxes, a lack of regulatory frameworks, and insufficient incentive schemes for end users.
In this session, we aim to gather industry figures from all links to shed a light on the efforts from their sides to speed up the installations in Brazil and probably provide more feasible solutions for future sustainable development, including:
Development outlook in the next few years
Major obstacles of installation in different scenarios
Possible measures and policy changes
