Both for solar and energy storage China has become an industrial powerhouse and a dominant player in global supply chains. However, in light of recent geopolitical developments, both the US and Europe have been making significant efforts to 'onshore' production of critical components, such as battery cells and PV panels.This session will examine Brazilian industry policies and local production initiatives in the context of these global developments and explore how these activities could contribute to a competitive local supply of solar PV and energy storage components and systems.
