The strong performance delivered by PV in Wednesday’s auction has demonstrated the solid market fundamentals of Brazil’s solar sector, and an improving competitive landscape. The winners of the auction included both major international players and local companies. Despite the auction’s surprising outcome, which was also driven by cheaper equipment and a stronger Real, PV technology will not be included in the upcoming A-6 auction.
In a conversation with pv magazine, the head of the Brazilian government-run energy agency EPE, Luiz Augusto Barroso has explained how the newly implemented mechanism for power auctions was conceived for ensuring a more market-oriented approach and increasing competition. Barroso has also said that the upcoming A-4 including solar may have a slightly bigger outcome of that held in December, and that the inclusion of solar in the A-6 auction, which is expected to be held in the second half of this year, is also being considered.

Brazil is expecting to see about 27 billion reais ($8.2 billion) invested into the country’s energy infrastructure over the next six years, the result of an end-of-year flurry of auctions aimed at boosting its electricity capacity.
I am delighted to be in Brazil for this very special occasion, which marks a historic step for the IEA and also for global energy governance.
