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.
In this report we describe the most relevant aspects regarding the four auctions held in 2018, the role of EPE and bring insights on how the results are likely to influence the energy planning studies in the country.
