ICLEI Case Study 114 Enhancing solar energy: Legal incentives and institutional provisions in Porto Alegre
Porto Alegre, one of the greenest cities in Brazil, created a legal regulation framework with incentives
for the use of solar thermal energy. The city, however, faces various challenges in the implementation
of the law. The Renewable Energies Reference Center (CRER) in Porto Alegre is studying ways to
overcome these difficulties and to encourage the use of solar energy in the municipality.
