Since ANEEL released new legislation regarding solar power this April, there has been an explosion in interest in the Brazilian solar market. Empresa de Pesquisa Energetica, better known as EPE, is the research arm of the Ministry of Mines and Energy in Brazil. In their comprehensive 60 page report released a matter of weeks ago, they cover everything from Brazil's solar resources and existing incentives, to the potential industrial value chain and the competitiveness of both distributed and centralized generation. The report was commissioned to instruct the Ministry of Mines and Energy in their decision making processes for solar policy.
