Abstract: A ban on state subsidies for non-domestic solar panel parts is thwarting solar-energy projects in Brazil, Bloomberg News reported Aug. 8. While developers in Chile have announced plans for more than 1,000 megawatts of solar panels this year, that figure is just 67.5 megawatts for Brazil. In the face of cheaper wind power, new shale gas developments and the enormous potential of pre-salt discoveries, what is the short- to medium-term future of solar energy in Brazil? What more should the government do to promote the sector?
