4th Latin American Distributed Microgeneration Seminar and Showcase

To debate and expose the role of clean energy microgeneration with renewable sources in Brazil and cooperation with Latin American countries, their prospects, challenges and progress, particularly in the role of an important agent in reducing extreme poverty and fostering new business markets. 
At the 4th Microgerar, the following themes will be discussed:
-                Advances and challenges of connectivity for energy microgeneration: laws, regulations, distributed generation connected and not connected to the power grid.
-                Energy trade model: retail market, rural energy cooperatives, social, legal and market impacts.
-                Economic development and creation of green jobs: impact on Brazilian industry, sustainable business opportunities.
-                Latin American initiatives of renewable energy use and socio-productive inclusion.

Target Audience

This is a matter that concerns not only energy companies, but people who operate in family agriculture, promotion of social economy and technological innovation, whether governments, businesses, organizations, universities. All segments of the Brazilian government with the potential to work directly on projects of rural and urban energy microgeneration, poverty reduction and social entrepreneurship will be invited, as well as researchers, students and international technical cooperation agencies and civil society organizations in Latin America that work directly with the theme. Microgeneration project funding entities will also be present.

RENOVE NETWORK is an entity composed of non-governmental organizations concerned with the dissemination of knowledge about renewable energy and its use for sustainable development. Established in 2000, it seeks to encourage the formulation of public policies that promote the use of renewable energy in the country and foster projects among its members that show different ways of using renewable energy to increase production on family agriculture, in order to promote access to energy as a form of mitigation in communities where the arrival of conventional networks is geographically and economically difficult, as well as the development of sustainable social technologies through economic solidarity and respect for local cultures.
In this context, Renove advocates decentralized microgeneration as the best alternative of energy inclusion, overcoming poverty and increasing the productive activity of thousands of Brazilians who still live in darkness, despite all government efforts, especially through the Luz para Todos (“Energy for All”) Program. And, after years of debate that culminated in the Normative Resolution 482/12 of the National Agency of Electric Energy, a new perspective opens in Brazil in the countryside and in the city, diversification of the energy matrix with hundreds of initiatives using sources renewable in the consumption site and more, with the possibility of selling the surplus of small-scale production. It is, undoubtedly, a great time in the Brazilian energy sector that can and should be known by the other countries of our continent, to share experiences, difficulties, and advance to a continental energy integration.
This is the proposal of the 4th Microgerar:  Renewable Energy Seminar and Showcase. Renove promotes this event since 2008 at the national level and, on the face of advances in regulatory standards and ongoing debates on legislation, we believe that it is time to broaden the audience and make the event open to all of Latin America. Hence the proposal of, in 2013, holding it in Foz do Iguaçu, a triple border city and house to the University of Latin America - UNILA the Itaipu Technological Park (PTI), and with this institutional support, the event is sure to bring a diverse public. As the edition held in Brasilia in May 2012, Microgerar registration will be free, so that a greater number of entities can participate, display their research and innovations, as well as monitor and contribute to debates.
Additionally, through a cooperation protocol signed between Renove and the Brazilian Cooperation Agency, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we intend to replicate microgeneration experiences that were successful in Brazil in countries where there is interest in energy cooperation and agriculture. An international event such as this one can show paths to such future cooperation.
