Press release no. 124/12

EnerSolar+ Brasil is the first international fair for photovoltaic, thermal and CSP industry in Brazil. Greenergy Expo Brasil, the international fair dedicated to biogas, cogeneration, geothermal energy, hydroelectricity, biofuels, waste treatment, takes place simultaneously, creating interesting synergies.

After its success in Italy, the EnerSolar+ Brasil - international expo & conference for the solar energy industry - debuts in Brazil, from the 11th to the 13th of July, 2012, at the Centro de Exposições Imigrantes, in San Paolo. The event is organized and promoted by Artenergy Publishing and Cipa Fiera Milano Group, and represents the first step for the creation of an international network of tradeshows dedicated to this industry.

In its first edition in Brazil, EnerSolar+ Brasil will support opportunities in the solar industry in South America, where some 150 national and international exhibitors from countries such as Italy, the United States, Germany, Spain, China, Switzerland, Portugal, Luxembourg and Cyprus, will present their technologies, services and solutions for industrial and civil sectors for solar thermal and photovoltaic energy, inverters and other renewable sources of energy.

During the three-day event, the tradeshow shall welcome some 6,000 professionals from the production chain of the industry, such as electrical installers, architects, engineers, energy managers, technical, electrical and thermal design firms, wholesalers and distributors of electrical materials, owners and managers of buildings and industrial buildings, engineering firms and contracting firms, agriculture companies, public administration, universities, research and training organizations, credit companies, finance and insurance companies, importers and exporters interested in solar energy and energy saving.

The fair will also feature an extensive programme of conferences, seminars and workshops, part of the programming of the Ecoenergy-International Congress of Clean and Renewable Technologies for Energy Generation.

Greenergy Expo Brasil 2012, the international fair dedicated to biogas, cogeneration, geothermal energy, hydro-electric energy, biofuels, waste treatment, creating important synergies, will be held concurrently with EnerSolar+ Brasil.

Energy generation in Brazil
With a privileged geographic location, crossed to the north by the Equator and to the south by the Tropic of Capricorn, Brazil is the ideal market for the development of solar energy. Today the country depends on hydroelectric plants to supply more than three quarters of its electricity, but the current governmental policies focus mainly on the improvement of the energy matrix, as well as on the increase of sustainable sources, such as solar energy, biomass and wind power. Today, the total installed capacity of photovoltaic power is estimated between 40 and 60 MWs, 50% of which is intended for telecommunications systems, and 50% for rural energy systems.
