(re)energisa (Brasil): Vila Restauração – Amazon Microgrid: Clean and Reliable Energy For All

The smarter E AWARD Winner 2023

(re)energisa (Brasil) was named a winner of the The smarter E AWARD 2023 in the Category "Outstanding Projects" for its project Vila Restauração – Amazon Microgrid: Clean and Reliable Energy For All


The Vila Restauração Microgrid is (re)energisa’s pioneering clean energy project in the heart of Brazil's Amazon rainforest. Through this initiative, families that received just three hours of electricity from diesel generators a day now enjoy 24-hour renewable energy at 60 percent lower costs.

The microgrid comprises a photovoltaic installation with a capacity of 325 kilowatts (kW) and a lithium-ion battery system with a capacity of 829 kilowatt hours (kWh).

In addition, it has 4G internet, wireless smart meters, biogas plants and two backup generators powered by regionally produced biodiesel. The system provides around 1,000 community members with reliable, clean energy and is to be deployed across the entire Amazon in the future.

Our panel of judges praised the microgrid’s sustainable, user-friendly design and ability to improve lives while preserving the Amazon rainforest.
