The overall objective of the Enabling PV project is to contribute to the sustainable deployment of solar PV in Brazil and explore the potential within solar energy auctions under the regulated market (ACR) and the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) signed in the free market (ACL).

Enabling PV provides information on the economic viability of each of those models and on the process for project development. To this end, the project team has developed a step-by-step guideline on how to exploit opportunities for solar PV auctions and an overview of the legal and administrative framework via this online and publically accessible website.

In order of the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), GIZ supports in the context of the German Cooperation for Sustainable Development measures for simplifying market access in promoting market growth in Brazil,. Therefore, GIZ cooperates with the German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar) to support local renewable energy institutions also in Brazil. Aside from the BSW-Solar, the project has been carried out in cooperation with the consulting company eclareon GmbH.
