Brazilian wind power on the rise: 7.2 GW by 2014

Brazilian wind power deployments could exceed 5 GW by 2013 representing a five-fold increase from the current installed capacity, according to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Brazil currently has 1120 MW of installed wind power capacity across 55 wind farms, mostly located in the eastern coastal states of the country.

Several energy auctions held since 2009 have added 5175 MW of wind power projects contracted by the Ministry of Mines and Energy, which would bring to country’s wind power installations up to more than 7.2 GW by 2014 and attract more than US$12 billion in investment.
