* US technology company Amazon has announced its first wind energy project in Brazil.

The project is expected to have an installed capacity of 49.5 megawatts (MW) and is estimated to generate 255 gigawatts-hours (GWh) per year when completed. The US tech giant has stated that the construction project would create around 1,000 jobs in Brazil, half of which are local workers from Rio Grande do Norte state.
