An example would be the Belo Monte Dam. Despite it not being completed yet, there are worries about the dam’s efficiency as where it’s positioned along the Xingu river near the city of Altamira, there is a 4 month dry season which means the dam wouldn’t be able to operate as much. This shows how HEP is dependent on water/precipitation variations in order for it to be a productive and efficient renewable energy source/supply.
The climate of Brazil varies with it being such a huge country. 90% of the country is in the tropical zone and the climate varies considerably from mostly the tropical north to the temperate south. In cities along the east coast such as Rio de Janeiro, Recife and Salvador have warm climates and have constant trade winds, which makes them suitable areas for wind power development. However as with dams being dependent on inputs such as rain, wind turbines would be dependent on trade winds and their strength posing implications as to their efficiency.
