About this Summit Location

It is important to highlight that the state of Ceará has great potential for wind energy generation due to its favorable geographical location, with constant and strong winds. The region is known for housing several wind farms that harness this natural resource. By investing in wind energy, Guaramiranga and Ceará can reap similar benefits as mentioned before. The state can become a reference in renewable energy development, boosting the local economy, creating jobs, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promoting sustainability. The use of wind as a renewable energy source not only brings environmental benefits but can also help diversify the state’s energy mix, reducing dependence on non-renewable sources such as oil and coal. This contributes to energy security and price stability. In summary, Guaramiranga, located in Ceará, can harness the potential of the strong winds in the region to drive the development of wind energy. By doing so, the city and the state can achieve economic, social, and environmental benefits, contributing to a better and more sustainable world.
