What we have done
Studio Santi has conceived and developed for Convert Italia the feasibility study of a new photovoltaic power plant located in Brazil, in the State of Minas Gerais, connected to the network, multi-technology, aimed at testing and characterizing the different technological options and identifying the most suitable one for the Brazilian needs. The study is supported by technical-scientific advice on photovoltaic technologies applicable to the Brazilian energy matrix and on their potential diffusion in Brazil, considering the technical-economic, environmental and social benefits of each option. The technical-scientific consultancy benefited from Studio Santi’s knowledge of the Brazilian energy sector, gained through on-site visits and contacts with the universities of Campinas and Rio De Janeiro, as well as with the Brazilian central energy authority.
