Solar floating technology is becoming a new game changer in the renewable sector allowing to combine solar and hydropwer.
GO ECO GREEN / ENERGIA LIMPIA XXI – Brazil is promoting floating solar energy projects. Empresa Metropolitana de Águas e Energia (EMAE), has open a public bidding to express its interest in selecting potential private and / or public partners to develop projects generation of electric energy, from floating photovoltaic solar source, to be installed in the Billings reservoir.
In this context, EMAE invites holders of capital, rights, projects and / or any business opportunities to express interest in the development of floating photovoltaic solar energy generation projects, aiming at future participation in the Regulated Contracting Environments (ACR) and / or Free Contracting (ACL).

EMAE’s participation in the partnership will take place through capital or assets, including the provision of sites for the implementation of the projects, as well as experience and training in the generation of electricity, and must have a share in the result of the sale of the energy generated . The reference power per project will be greater than or equal to 1MWp and less than or equal to 30MWp.
