In Uruguay, the government will confirm tenders for more than 150 MW this year. In Chile 200 MW will get access to the grid within one year in addition to projects of more than 2.000 MW that are in pipeline right now. In Sao Paulo, 13.000 MW capacities have been presented to the biggest wind energy tender in Brazilian history. There is no doubt that in the MERCOSUR region wind power is one of the most successful alternatives.
Despite this awakening, as well as all positive signals given by policy makers, there are still some doubts concerning network capability, compensation mechanisms and financing. WindAR 2009 focuses on these topics. International grid experts, technology providers and project developers together with policy makers will discuss possible solutions on November 17th 2009 to place wind energy as a cost-effective and sustainable form of electricity generation with even faster breakthroughs.
