The concept of sustainability encompasses practices aimed at exploiting resources that respect the environment. Renewable energy sources, for example, are pointed out as a clean way of obtaining energy, and the future of electric power must be completely sustainable.
Considered one of the largest countries that most explore renewable energy sources for electricity production, Brazil has an ambitious target for 2050.
Over the next 30 years, the country wants to produce 85% of its electricity from renewable sources, such as solar. Thinking about the future and offering up to 200MW of energy, Light DeFi (LIGHT) complies with Brazil’s energy plan.
Thinking of providing an alternative to the electricity market, Light DeFi is developing a photovoltaic plant, which can provide clean energy to 110,000 homes, or even R$20 million per month in revenue generated through the sun.
Brazil is an example in the world
According to a recent report by the Federal Government, Brazil reached the milestone of 48% of electricity produced by renewable sources in 2021. In the coming years, this index can increase to 85%.
Brazil intends to reach 85% of the electricity used in the country in 2050 from clean sources. For this, the country must develop initiatives aimed at the production of wind and solar energy.
Before reaching 85% of its clean energy matrix in 2050, by 2030, Brazil may have 80% of its electricity production turned to renewable sources, according to the agreement assumed by the country at the Climate Summit.
Solar energy grew 200%
Brazil has two main sources of renewable energy that are predicted to grow in the coming years to meet energy demand. Responsible for the primary source of clean energy produced in the country, wind energy currently represents 10.9% of the renewable energy source.
Meanwhile, solar energy is still only 2% of all renewable energy sources explored in Brazil. The trend is for this index to increase more if it follows the evolution of the solar energy market.
According to the Ministry of Mines and Energy, solar energy production by photovoltaic plants – like the Light DeFi project – has grown 200% in the last three years.
Meanwhile, the exploitation of solar energy by the population increased even more between 2018 and 2021. Considering only small solar power generation plants, the increase was 2,000% in the same period.
As a proposal for 2021, Brazil intends to increase the share of solar energy in the energy matrix to 2.9% by the end of the year. In addition to solar energy, by 2025, wind energy should represent 13.6% of renewable energy consumption in the country, a growth of more than 20%.
