Brazil's solar power market is growing rapidly. In 2021, Brazil's cumulative installed photovoltaic power generation capacity reached 13.71GW, of which the cumulative installed capacity of distributed photovoltaics was 9.08GW, accounting for more than 66% of the total domestic photovoltaic installed capacity.
In recent years, the Brazilian government has made many efforts in terms of policies, taxes and fees to activate the solar energy market and gradually change the country's energy utilization structure. For example, Nova Olinda, the largest photovoltaic solar power plant project in Latin America, has officially started construction in Piauí state in northeastern Brazil. The total investment is nearly US$300 million, the installed capacity is 292MW, and it covers an area of 690 hectares. It will produce 600GWh of electricity every year, which can satisfy 300,000 households. electricity demand.
Brazil’s solar power generation market has broad prospects.
First of all, the Brazilian government has implemented a series of policies to support photovoltaic power generation, including tax incentives, financial subsidies, investment subsidies, etc. It has also implemented the "National Renewable Energy Plan", which plans to increase the proportion of renewable energy power generation to 20% by 2030. %, providing good development opportunities for Brazilian photovoltaic power generation.
Secondly, the technical level of photovoltaic power generation in Brazil continues to improve, and the installed capacity of photovoltaic power generation is also constantly increasing. In 2021, Brazil's cumulative installed photovoltaic power generation capacity reached 13.71GW, of which the cumulative installed capacity of distributed photovoltaics is 9.08GW, occupying the leading position. The total domestic photovoltaic installed capacity accounts for more than 66%.
In addition, wind and solar power generation surges again in most of Latin America in 2023, and will easily exceed last year's record total. As Latin America's largest economy, Brazil is also the country with the largest installed photovoltaic power generation capacity in the region. Photovoltaic power generation is expected to easily exceed last year's record total.
The solar tracker is a device used to improve the efficiency of solar panels in Brazil. It can adjust the angle and position of the panels in real time to keep them on the path of the sun's movement, thereby increasing the life of the solar panels and improving their efficiency. .
Brazilian solar power generation systems using solar trackers usually include solar panels, trackers, controllers and inverters, of which the tracker is the core component. The tracker can track the sun through dual-axis or single-axis movement. The dual-axis tracking system can track the sun in all directions and is suitable for areas with relatively insufficient power; while the single-axis tracking system can only track the movement of the sun. Suitable for areas with abundant sunshine and low land costs.
Brazilian solar power generation systems using solar trackers have the advantages of improving power generation efficiency and reliability, reducing construction and operating costs, and are therefore widely used in the photovoltaic industry.
