The race is on to fix this hidden crisis now in Brazil with the climate change and provide the incentives needed to support energy from Floating Solar, Offshore Wind, and Storage in sustainable hydropower.

The user case has been made now, it´s the turn of world leaders to respond and show the understand of the crucial role, it will play in combating climate change and ensuring energy security.

It will play in balancing a decarbonized Grid by plugging in Hydropower the Floating Solar, Offshore Wind, and Storage power. When the level of water is low in hydropower we plug Floating Solar, the Offshore Wind or storage, when the sun doesn´t shine or the wind doesn´t blow we plug the hydropower

We´re going to start and there are only three options, this is one of then Hybridization, the Other is to increase fossil fuel generation, as today in Brazil and the third option is BLACKOUT and we don´t want that
