The primary goal of the partnership is to discuss the developments of the solar PV and offer benefits to other companies in the sector, according to Renewable Energy World. The conference will take place from August 28 to 30, in São Paulo, Brazil and will be attended by government representatives, industry associations, companies, financial institutions and academics.

In addition more than 25 sessions, workshops and other events will be held at the conference. The topics will range from Brazilian solar PV market, Latin American solar PV markets, project financing, renewable energy cooperatives, technology and inno­vations in PV equipment manufacturing to electrical energy storage.

The CEO of ABSOLAR, Dr. Rodrigo Sauaia, said: “Solar PV grows exponentially in Brazil, with a highly qualified business environment, generating employment and income in the most varied regions of the country.”

According to Ronaldo Koloszuk, President of the Board of ABSOLAR, “With the reduction in equipment prices over the recent years, along with the rising electricity tariffs and the professionalisation of the sector, solar PV energy has become an investment with very attractive return rates. This creates more and more business opportunities for our members.”
