Energy (Brazil): is official information reliable?

The Electric Energy Trading Chamber (the Brazilian official power clearing house), as reported by Canal Energia, foresees, for 2021, an average price of the PLD ("electric power spot") below R$ 100/MWh. 1USD = R$ 5.3.

It would be a historic mark. In 2020, the average PLD was R$ 176/MWh for the country's SE region.

In this year, of 2021, with the expectation of an improvement in the economy and an associated increase in electricity consumption, the PLD is expected to rise. Not fall!

In these months of January and February, the average PLD is much closer to R$ 200/MWh!

I offer this space to CCEE and Canal Energia to explain the reason for publishing their expectations for average annual PLD for 2021, below R$ 100/MWh.
