Summary

The review of the Brazilian net-metering regulation (REN 482/2012), one of the hottest topics for the solar PV industry, will be center stage in this session. It represents both an opportunity for and a threat to the development of small and medium-scale solar PV projects in Brazil. The new regulation is expected to be published by the end of 2019, but there are many fundamental issues still under discussion. What improvements in the net-metering scheme need to be implemented? Which new technologies and business models will evolve? What are the latest regulatory and market innovations taking place in the distributed generations market in Brazil and elsewhere?
