The project, which will cross more than 50 Brazilian cities in 15 states, aims to qualify professionals and encourage entrepreneurial initiatives with renewable energies.
SAO PAULO, May 3, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Today, Huawei and the Brazilian Distributed Production Association (ABGD) will begin the first Huawei Solar Tour, a mobile truck fully adapted for qualification courses, with a classroom, space for workshops and a demonstration house with kitchen and laundry room, fully equipped, powered by a grid-distributed and off-grid microgeneration system, which will be used for demonstration Activities.
The initiative, whose main sponsor is Huawei, also benefits from the support of the São Paulo State Secretariat for Infrastructure and Environment (SIMA) and other companies in the solar energy market, which will provide fundamental courses on installing photovoltaic systems in more than 50 cities, covering the main states of Brazil. Departure is scheduled for May 3rd.
Solar power means greater production capacity, clean energy around the clock, optimized costs, intelligence, efficiency and safety – this is the message Huawei wants to convey at all stops on the Road Show with ABGD and offer an immersive experience to participants. In the residential scenario, the participant will be able to see Huawei’s smart photovoltaic solution for homes up close, which provides 24 hours of clean, stable and profitable energy with no impact on the routine and quality of life of its residents.
“Imagine a unique solution based on digital technologies that ensures the delivery of clean energy day and night, in a very intuitive, efficient and economical way for residential, commercial and industrial environments. This is not a future trend. is now possible, “says Fabio Mendes, Director of Huawei Channel Partners, Enterprise Group for Latin America.
The project has three objectives: to raise awareness of the importance of the use of renewable sources for energy production; qualify, with a traveling classroom, professionals interested in the installation of photovoltaic systems and bring knowledge to relatively remote areas.
“Our idea is to include in the itinerary the main capitals and important cities identified in the itinerary, promoting solar photovoltaic energy in practice”, comments Carlos Evangelista, president of ABGD.
“We have prepared a course with a workload of 8 hours, which includes the basics of regulation of distributed electricity production, preliminary sizing of solar photovoltaic projects, safety and quality of installations and sales” , explains Evangelista. ABGD plans to train over 2,000 people along the route, which includes a 12-month road tour.
Besides the technical aspects, the course covers several stages of the commercialization process of photovoltaic systems and promotes entrepreneurship. Evangelista stresses that renewable energies can be a determining factor in the economic recovery as a whole.
“By strengthening the market for photovoltaic systems in a region, you offer residences and commercial establishments the possibility of saving on the energy tariff and, in addition to that, it stimulates the economy and generates several jobs”, underlines the president of ABGD.
In the residential scenario, inside the truck, with a kitchen and laundry room equipped and powered by solar photovoltaic energy, it shows how in practice, in everyday life, an environment where electricity is produced right there with the sunlight.
“Throughout ABGD’s work, we have identified many doubts in the population regarding the complexity and feasibility of installing a photovoltaic system, as well as ensuring the energy supply,” says Evangelista. The executive points out that in the Huawei Solar Roadshow truck it will be possible to dispel the myths related to distributed production.
Priscila Carazzatto, Commercial Director at ABGD, adds: “ABGD has increasingly sought to promote business development in the distributed power generation sector. The HUAWEI Solar Road Show provides nationwide coverage and a great opportunity to show a fully operational off-grid system. will be able to provide means to encourage job creation in a growing sector.We are talking about the sustainable development of the sector, one of the operating principles of ABGD, whose story is: combine economic growth, professional qualification and environmental benefits in transformation projects ”, she concludes.
Carazzatto says that ABGD is already in the process of formatting the second phase of the project, which will be a roving FV boat sailing the Purus River (a tributary of the Amazon River), providing training and qualification to populations bordering the Amazon, in addition to disseminating and making available all public policies focused on renewable energies and applicable in the Brazilian Amazon region.
How to visit and participate
The truck tour, which will also feature the display of renewable energy videos, will be open to the public and organized in accordance with COVID-19 safety and social distancing protocols. ABGD has the support of an infectious disease specialist to develop its own protocol for the Huawei Solar Road Show, which will have constant disinfection of the environment, the distance between participants, the distribution of two masks for each student and a gel alcoholic.
To take the course, you must register on the site www.roadshowhuaweisolar.com.br and bring 1 kg of non-perishable food on the day of the training. The ABGD will also invite local businesses to contribute with food donations, which will be delivered to an institution in the city where the unit is present.
The Brazilian Association of Distributed Generation (ABGD), the largest Brazilian association in the renewable energy sector, has more than 900 members, including solution providers, EPCs, integrators, distributors, manufacturers, companies of different sizes and segments, in addition to professionals and academics, who have in common the direct or indirect performance in the distributed generation. It was founded in 2015 to give legitimacy to the demands of companies dedicated to microgeneration and mini-generation of electrical energy from clean and renewable sources. ABGD represents and defends the interests of its associates with government agencies, class entities, regulatory bodies, industry agents and, more than that, works on the dissemination of distributed production to different sectors of society, by integrating the concepts of sustainability, financial performance, legal certainty, energy efficiency and predictability of expenditure with respect to the production and consumption of energy at or near the site of consumption.
