Wind power creates 19,000 jobs in Brazil

Brazil (Natural energy was): Wind power, the second source of electric power in Brazil, behind hydroelectricity, represents 19,000 jobs in Brazil, compared to 34,000 in 2018. Even with the decline, Brazil is one of the 10 most used in the world. The segment lags behind China, Germany, United States, India, United Kingdom, Denmark, Mexico, Spain and the Philippines. The report states that, prior to the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic, the wind sector was expected to expand due to planned installations.





About 80% of this market is located in the northeast, which has the best wind conditions. The report states that local control requirements and concessional services for project developers have strengthened the national supply chain for wind turbines. It is also a high impact in the production of towers and the most moderate effect in the construction of wind turbines. The national content in the Brazilian wind sector is currently estimated at 80%.

Brazil is the second country which provides the most employment in renewable energy. If the number of all countries of the European bloc decreases, Brazil will occupy third place and remain the world leader. O 1,158 million people working as green energy in Brazil in 2018, 10% of the world's labour force is deployed in renewable energy.

The data come from a recent report by the International Renewable Energy Agency of such 11.5 million in the world, compared to 11 million in 2018, there are 4.3 million in China, 1.316 million in EU, 833 thousand in India and 756 thousand in EE.UU.

It supports the five largest employers in the world. Area.


Among the largest employers' group, only the United States lost job postings: every 100,000 job positions were lost between 2018 and 2019. Brazil added around 30,000 in the same period; European Union totals 80 thousand; India more than 100 thousand; And China 300 thousand.

Photovoltaic solar power, which had 15,000 deployments to Brazil in 2018, reached 44 thousand in 2019. Concentrated solar power still has no presence in Brazil. As a result, Brazil, which did not appear in the ranking of the most successful in terms of the latest report, now ranks among the largest employers in the region - behind China, with 2.2 million employees. - From Japan, America, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Malaysia and Germany and the Philippines. According to IRENA, supply offerings in the field of photovoltaic solar energy have increased 4% in the past year, accumulating 3.8 million working hours.


The segment of distributed solar photovoltaic energy generates 85% of these costs. According to the report, more than half of all photovoltaic solar power installations, and therefore many jobs working in the region, are concentrated in four states: Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, Sao Paulo and ParanĂ¡.


The document shows that the expansion of the manufacturing capacity of photovoltaic panels in Brazil is being driven by the attractiveness of Chinese manufacturers and specific lines of financing from the National Development Bank and Regional Development Banks. Solar heating sets it apart for using natural energy from solar energy to hot water, as well as in China and the United States, but a return to Brazil and India. After three consecutive years of collapse, this labour market made up 6% in Brazil in 2019, totalling 43,900 work posts, each with one percent of photovoltaic energy.

Despite the development of photovoltaics, biofuels are still responsible for Brazil's position in the generation rankings of Irena employees, with 839 thousand workers, some more than 832 thousand in 2018. About 200 thousand units are in sugarcane sugar cultivation, 150 thousand more in ethanol processing and about 260 thousand in biodiesel production. The report also includes an estimated estimate of 200,000 indirect labor costs in the manufacture of the equipment.
