Brazil's Ministry of Mines and Energy announced on Monday the country produced 5,804 MW average (MWa) of wind power last Tuesday, breaking for a second time this month the record for daily generation.
The volume produced by Brazilian wind farms on September 13 was by 606 MWa above the first daily record registered in the second half of 2016 -- 5,203 MWa on July 25, the ministry said. Meanwhile, the best score up until last Tuesday was of 5,783 MWa, registered on September 7.
In August, the country's wind sector reached 9,327 MW of installed capacity, representing an increase of 2,790 MW in comparison to the same month of last year.
Accroding to Brazil's Ten Year Energy Plan 2024 (PDE 2024), the country expects to reach 24,000 MW of installed wind capacity by 2024.
By the end of 2030, the country also plans to expand the share of non-hydro renewable energy to at least 23% of the its energy mix.
