Renewables projects are on the rise, not least in Brazil, where “diversification” is the buzzword. “Wind and solar projects continue to be important, but there’s a necessity to diversify, especially in thermal plants,” said José Prado, M&A partner at Machado Meyer Advogados. “Our president-elect is also talking about nuclear and hydro power expansion,” he added.
