Brazil imported 17.8 GW of photovoltaic panels in 2022, with a purchase value of more than BRL 64 billion (US$12.3 billion), according to a report on distributed photovoltaic systems recently published by Brazilian consulting agency Greener.
Jingke Energy was the largest PV module supplier in Brazil last year with a shipment of 3065 MW. The main suppliers of PV modules are Ates (2340MW), Longji (1830MW), Trina Solar (1802MW), Oriental Risheng (1480MW) and Jingao (1101MW).
Greener surveyed and counted 71 PV module manufacturers shipped to the Brazilian PV market in 2022, but the 10 manufacturers with the highest shipment volume accounted for 81% of the market share.
Brazil installed almost 10 GW of photovoltaic systems in 2022. The total installed capacity of photovoltaic systems in the country exceeded 25 GW and accounted for 11.6% of the total electricity generation. The total installed capacity of public utility-scale photovoltaic systems in Brazil is 7.8 GW.
According to data released by ABSolar, the installed capacity of photovoltaic systems in Brazil has increased by an average of 1 GW per month since July 2022. By July 2022, the total installed capacity of photovoltaic systems in the country was 16.4 GW, but by the end of 2022 it had reached 25 GW.
