The Nordeste Potência, which is an initiative formed by Centro Brasil no Clima, Fundo Casa Socioambiental, Grupo Ambientalista da Bahia and the ClimaInfo Institute, with support from iCS, has the objective to promote the public debate on the post-pandemic recovery in the Northeast on green, just and inclusive bases. It has been calculated that at least 2 million green jobs can be created in the renewable energy sector in the region over the next five years, highlighting the potential of the distributed solar generation.
