Wind in line to benefit from $3.9bn Brazil energy fund

Brazil has created a R$15bn ($3.9bn) energy fund for its southeastern and centre-west (FESC) regions to finance the construction of at least 2.5GW of new generation plants – including wind, biomass and gas-fired plants – to supply power to large industrial groups over the next 20 years.
