Brazil, blessed with gigantic fossil and hydroelectric resources, crosses a boom of the Aeolian energy, thanks to its smaller prices of production, added to the incentives of the government that they attract an increasing number of foreign companies. The sector of Aeolian energy of the country has a present capacity of about 1,400 MW, and it is anticipated that this number multiplies by eight for 2014, according to the Brazilian Association of Aeolian Energy, ABEeolica. A study of the institute Investigation on Emergent Energy IHS indicates that Brazil, main market of Aeolian energy of Latin America, will have 31.6 gigawatts (gigawatt is equivalent to 1,000 MW) of capacity installed for 2025. In an auction energetics organized in August last through the government, the proprietors of 44 wind farms in Brazil gained 39% of the offered total capacity, offering for the first time a price average of 99.58 real ones (62.91 dollars) per megawatt-hour, below the average of two gas projects (103,26 real) and of a hydroelectric project (102 real ones).

Smaller prices of production, governmental incentives and the increasing demand energetics of Brazil have attracted a significant digit of foreign companies. Wobben Windpower, subsidiary of the German group Enercon, installed the first factory of Aeolian turbines in the years 90 and hopes to install 22 wind farms by a total of 554 MW for 2012 ends. This company, they followed the Gamesa Spanish, the Impsa Argentinean, the Siemens German, the Vestas Danish – the manufacturing major of Aeolian turbines of the world, GE Wind (a branch of GE Energy, subsidiary of the General American Electric) and the Suzlon Indian to him. The last one in adding itself to the group of investors is the French giant of the Alstom engineering, that the past Wednesday inaugurated a plant of construction of Aeolian turbines in Bay (northeast), his first in Latin America. The potential major is in the northeast of the country, mainly in the states of Bay, Rio Grande North do and Cear, due to the high incidence and wind speeds low of turbulences like tornados or hurricanes.
