Despite Brazil’s current economic and political crisis, the South American nation could climb to 9th place in the global league table for installed wind power capacity as it continues a high-speed build out of new developments.

By the end of 2015, Brazil is expected to pass 9GW of installed capacity, adding over 3GW during the year – earning it fourth or fifth place in new capacity installed in the year, according to Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) figures.
