Brazil reached the threshold of 1,000 MW of installed capacity, as a result of the strong industrial growth the sector has experienced since the introduction of the competitive auction model. The same model is now being replicated in several countries in the region with different results. The 1-GW mark was reached after the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) authorised the Elebrás Cidreira 70-MW wind farm, located in Tramandaí in Rio Grande do Sul. It is the 50th wind farm to come online in the country.
