Senator Cassio Cunha Lima presented on Monday a bill to introduce a mandatory renewable energy share target of at least 15% in Brazil's power mix by 2025.
This will require changes in the law that created the Incentive Program for Alternative Sources of Electric Energy (Proinfa) and set a minimum level of 10% by the year 2022.
Proinfa created favorable conditions for wind power to become part of Brazil's energy mix. Thanks to the programme, the country has of now 6.7 GW of installed wind power capacity.
