Auren Energia Pioneers 48-MW Solar Hybrid Park in Brazil
- Auren Energy launches 48.1-MW Sol do Piaui solar park: the first commercial-scale hybrid project in Brazil to be granted a license by Aneel. 112,080 solar modules and 206-MW Ventos do Piaui I wind complex for 24-hour energy transmission. BRL 255 million investment to generate clean energy.
Auren Energy has launched the 48.1-MW Sol do Piaui solar park in the northeastern state of Piaui, part of a hybrid project with the 206-MW Ventos do Piaui I wind complex. The project cost BRL 255 million (USD 52m/EUR 47.6m) to build and required 112,080 solar modules to complete. This is the first commercial-scale hybrid project in Brazil to have been granted a license by the power sector regulator Aneel. Fabio Zanfelice, Auren Energia's chief executive, notes that this hybrid concept allows for 24-hour energy transmission as wind production occurs mostly at night due to Piaui’s wind characteristics.
