Microgerar is RENOVE’s initiative to foster debate on distributed electricity micro-generation in Brazil. Although this theme has come to fruition in many countries, it is not the case in Brazil. Even though good initiatives were deployed, micro-generation still isn’t considered as a national public policy. By generating energy at the point of consumption, micro-generation becomes an important tool for poverty eradication policies, particularly in isolated and remote regions.
