Energy: Brazilian idiosyncrasies

Energy: Brazilian idiosyncrasies

The auction for energy supply in Roraima closed with the winning bid of R$ 833/MWh (USD 210/MWh).

Regulated tariffs, granted by ANEEL to the local concessionaire, are in the range of R$ 400/MWh considering a typical case of a medium voltage connected company.

Obviously - subsidies enable the difference. Nothing new. It has always been like that!

The situation in Venezuela (where Brazil is buying power) has been critical for many years. Importing energy from that country has always been a huge risk.

If we are interested and creative in planning, we will be able to turn around this situation avoiding subsidies for the benefit of all Brazilians.
