Wind and Solar Energy in Brazil: Understanding the How and Why (By Eric Lonstein and Todd Winter) is great post on Harvard Students talk Rio+20 (which is a blog full of Harvard students’ studies of Rio+20, Brazil and sustainability). Wind and Solar energy in Brazil is part of a bigger three part blog series entitled, Making the Cleanest Energy Economy Cleaner. The cleanest energy economy they’re speaking of is Brazil, which is made clear in the opening line of the post, “Brazil’s energy matrix is often touted as among the cleanest in the world: over 80% of Brazil’s power is produced from renewable resources.” The post then goes on to address the raising wind energy industry in Brazil and the role the government has played and continues to play in the develop of the industry. The post is a very interesting read, as is the entire site. I promise it’s not a lot of hot air. In fact, I highly recommend it.
