Energy costs, tariffs and prices in Brazil

Analyzing energy costs, prices and tariffs has become a complex exercise given the amount of variables at stake and the characteristics of each of them involving technical, financial and management aspects.

In this "environment", making decisions about contracting energy, whether electrical or from other sources (solar, gas, wind, biomass, biodiesel, etc.) is essentially about identifying and mitigating an extensive list of risks.

The graph shows the evolution of a set of references:

  • The price offered by the free market for long-term (LTP) 
  • Marginal cost of expansion of renewable plants (MCE, r) 
  • Marginal cost of expansion of the energy matrix (ECM) 
  • Marginal operating cost of the national system (ONS) 

How to interpret the movements per each reference?
Which contracting alternatives are best suited for each case?
How to best contract each alternative?

If you wish to explore these issues, contact us to potentially discover solutions that present a virtuous combination of competitive costs and sound risk management.
