Fronius assumes leading position in the expansion of renewable energy in Brazil.

The photovoltaic industry in Brazil is on an upward trend. Along with solar farms, more and more decentralized systems have appeared in recent years. Experts confirm growth of more than 300 percent for 2017. As a specialist in solar technology, Fronius Solar Energy is one of the leaders in this development, and supports private and commercial plant operators with high-quality, easy-to-install inverters.

Fronius has been represented in Brazil by a subsidiary in São Paulo since 2003 – initially with its two other business areas, welding and battery charging technology, and, since 2013, also with the Business Unit Solar Energy. Brazil obtains approximately three-quarters of its energy requirements from water power – in recent years, long dry periods have caused extensive supply problems. T

he market and the demand for suitable photovoltaic solutions are therefore steadily growing. Along with a number of qualified sales and service partners throughout the country, the affiliate company, Fronius do Brasil, also has subsidiaries in the federal states of Minas Gerais, Paraná, Amazonas, Sao Paulo and Rio Grande do Sul. “We felt from a very early stage that we would like to support new markets, such as those here in Brazil, from the ground up. This is completely in line with our vision of ‘24 hours of sun’ – a world which is supplied entirely from renewable energy sources“, explains Martin Schwarzlmüller, Area Sales Manager, Solar Energy, Fronius International GmbH. “Above all, it is important to have local representation. Our team in Brazil can provide targeted help in matters ranging from system design and installation problems to handling warranty claims. The company has also recently invested in a modern test system for inverters“, explains Schwarzlmüller. In addition, Fronius offers a wide training program and organizes numerous events for sales and service partners.
