Details

Brazil is Latin America’s largest economy and a global leader in renewable energy, with auctions scheduled this year for utility-scale renewable energy as well as transmission infrastructure. Brazil’s Renewable Energy Finance Event, BIREC, is the marketplace offering you the renewable energy finance thought-leadership required to succeed in this rapidly escalating economy.

As Brazil accelerates its clean energy transition, we recognise the needs of our attendees to learn and exchange ideas in a more personable and enjoyable environment. The BIREC team is returning to São Paulo and have evolved the format of Brazil’s Renewable Energy Finance Event into an exciting and exclusive intimate networking opportunity.

Globally, Brazil is second only to China in terms of overall renewable energy performance. This Amazonian giant boasts 149GW of installed power capacity and a GDP of an impressive $1,798.62 billion. Since 2012, Brazil has enjoyed $55.61billion worth of renewable energy investment. The Brazilian economy is now on an upwards curve, with inflation at a record low, and the national development bank, Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Economico e Social (BNDES) alone has invested over $29 billion in renewable energy in Brazil.
