Project description
The project activity reduces the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) through the use of renewable sources of energy and making use of clean technology, avoiding the generation of electricity via sources of fossils fuels with consequent emissions of CO2, that would be generated if the project did not exist. The Project generates electricity through clean and renewable source and it contributes to attend the growing demand for electricity in Brazil, due to the country’s economical and population growth, contributing, thus, to the environmental, social and economical sustainability, by increasing the participation of clean and renewable energy in relation to the country’s total consumption of electricity. The installation of HPP Barra Grande provides the generation of enough electricity to the supply of 30% of the energetic demand of the state of Santa Catarina or 20% of the total energy consumed in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
