Brazil has 176 GW of installed capacity, and its power matrix is predominantly renewable. The country is highly interconnected, but a significant part of the North region is not connected. The Amazon Region of Brazil has isolated generation systems that add up to approximately 1 GW in diesel-based generation and serve about 3.3 million people. Diesel makes generation in the Isolated Systems highly intense in emissions, and there is also a great environmental risk to the transport of diesel by river for delivery to consumption sites. It is a huge and complex concern. The relevant issue is to identify the opportunities and solutions to transform the Amazon into a diesel-free environment using clean and renewable energy systems associated with electricity consumption models that allow a broad economic and social development of the communities served and that are compatible with the region’s environmental complexity.
