Distributed Generation – Market developments in Brazil

The Brazilian electrical system is undergoing an electroenergetic transition on the load side. This situation favours photovoltaic micro and mini-generation, with emphasis on the feeding of air-conditioning systems.

The accelerated growth of distributed generation has implied regulatory challenges (tariff issues). Energy management based on the ISO 50001 standard is a necessity for the set of consumers and self-producers. It helps to minimize the demand for solar generation and for external supply.
