In 2018, the Ministry of Mines and Energy conducted four electricity auctions, two New Energy Auctions (“A-4” and “A-6”) and two Existing Energy Auctions (“A-1” and “A-2”). The objective of New Energy Auctions is supplying the regulated market (captive consumers), providing long term energy contracts for power generators. In the case of Existing Energy Auctions, they must contract energy from power plants already developed and in operation, mainly for short contract term.
On 21-23 November 2018, Rio de Janeiro hosted the workshop "CEM Days - Integration of Renewables in the Electric Sector: Paths and Challenges to Energy Planning". The event, organized by EPE, took advantage of the framework enabled by the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), and its aim to empower energy decision makers around the world with the up-to-date information and tools, as means to accelerate transition to low carbon energy.
he history and development of underground gas storage (UGS) is inseparable from natural gas industry development. Because it is a network industry, the natural gas sector has required, since its beginning, technologies to deal with the temporal and spatial mismatch of supply and demand.
Brazil´s energy sector decline, reform, recovery and newfound impulse
RIO DE JANEIRO – The collapse in oil prices in late 2014 and ensuing slow recovery until mid-2017, combined with a severe macroeconomic crisis and instability that hit Brazil at about the same time, bruised in the Brazilian oil sector.
EPE publishes a new Technical Note “Photovoltaic Projects on Energy Auctions”.
In partnership with EPE and the Ministry of Mines and Energy, IEA will promote a webinar on Multiple Benefits of Energy Efficiency This webinar is part of the scope of the joint work plan of Brazil and the IEA and will be held in September 19th,from 10:00 to 11:00 (Brasilia time), from the from the IEA's headquarters in Paris, France. The presentations will be conducted in English only, by IEA's energy efficiency expert Kathleen Gaffney. The webinar is open to the public interested in the topic.
