Brazil unveiled a new Energy Expansion Plan last week that includes a large increase in wind power and stable growth from other energy sources. The 10 year plan, like the previous one, calls for construction of hydroelectric dams in government protected areas, with hydropower supplying 71 percent of the country’s energy. Fossil fuel thermal plants would produce 15 percent; wind energy, 6.7 percent; biomass thermoelectric plants, 5.3 percent; and nuclear energy, 2 percent.
