The Brazilian power market is among the top in the world, and with
growing demands for a reliable grid and solid generation platforms, the
need for sharing ideas and technology is stronger than ever.
Brazil has the 3rd largest electricity sector in the Americas behind the United States and Canada with a power consumption that is
more than double the combined consumption of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile
and Uruguay. Brazil is 2nd only to China of countries utilizing hydropower generation and is one of the top 10 countries where more than 80% of investments in excess of $378 billion will be concentrated for the building of electric smart grids between now and 2030.

along with product and service providers in the power generation and
delivery markets, all Under One Roof.
