Brazil Solar Energy Conference (BSEC) 2013
Organization: Cleantech Investor
|Event Date/Time: May 27, 2013||End Date/Time: May 28, 2013|
Building on the success of of our Brazil Wind Energy Conference (BWEC) last year, the focus of Brazil Solar Energy Conference (BSEC 2013) is the enormous potential of Brazil's solar business. Join numerous senior financiers and developers at BSEC to discuss the financing and investment required to scale up the embryonic solar industry in Brazil. Outstanding industry speakers will deliver an excellent programme focusing on regulatory incentives, small- vs large-scale manufacturing, technology, distribution, the role of BNDES, how solar will fit in with other renewable energy, and what lessons Brazil can learn from other countries that have built a solar industry. Participants are invited from all sectors of the Brazilian solar industry – and those interested in participating it – from the smallest installers and consultants to the largest manufacturers and project developers.
Attend BSEC 2013 to benefit from:
• Critical insight from industry leaders including: - Jose Sergio Gabrielli de Azevedo, Secretary of Planning, State of Bahia (former President, Petrobras) - Mathias Becker, President, Renova Energia - Andre Shortell, Partner, GP Bullhound - Antonio Tovar, Head of Renewable Energy, BNDES • Illuminating presentations and in-depth case studies: - Get up to speed with this constantly evolving and lucrative market. - Discover the most appropriate regulatory incentives for the solar industry in Brazil. - Establish whether Brazil can compete as a solar equipment manufacturer, and if there’s scope for a domestic equipment manufacturing industry. - Find out which regions of Brazil are best suited to utility scale solar, and what the most appropriate technologies are. - Explore how solar will fit within the Brazilian energy mix, alongside other renewables (wind, hydro, biomass) and other forms of energy generation. - Discuss the scope for micro / building integrated / distributed solar in Brazil. - Look at the role of BNDES and the regional development banks in financing solar in Brazil. - Determine what expertise is required in Brazil to build the solar industry, and whether the focus should be on technology research or on engineering skills. - Assess what lessons Brazil can learn from the successes (and failures) of other nations which have built a solar industry. • Network with the expert speakers and your industry peers: - Meet, exchange ideas, share knowledge and forge profitable business relationships not only with BSEC 2013 participants but also with those attending the Brazil Wind Energy Conference (BWEC 2013) and the Brazil Small Renewables Day (BSRD 2013) as the programmes overlap across the two days.
