Certification of wind farms and photovoltaic plants in Brazil
The register and technical qualification of wind and photovoltaic projects for the Empresa de Pesquisa Energética – EPE, requires that the promoters present some technical documentation of the project. This documentation shall be made following the Instruções issued by EPE: No. EPE-DEE-017/2009 – for wind projects – and No. EPE-DEE-RE-065/2013 – for photovoltaic projects.
The data and information provided by the developer for the Cadastramento e a Habilitação Técnica will be used as well, for the estimation of the physical guarantees of the projects, and electric energy purchase and sale contracts.
Among the technical documents to be delivered by the developers of the projects, there are:
- Wind projects: certification of anemometric masts, anemometric measurements and annual energy production and standard uncertainty.
- Photovoltaic projects: certification of solarimetric data, and annual energy production and standard uncertainty.
Barlovento perform these certifications for EPE which allow the technical qualification of the projects. Since 2009, we have certified several wind projects, some of them are already built. Also, we have certified photovoltaic projects since the first bids, held in 2013.
