By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Board of ANEEL decided during a Public Meeting to delegate indefinitely to the Electric Energy Commercialization Chamber (CCEE) the operationalization of the auctions for generation and sale of electricity in the Regulated Contracting Environment (ACR). The current delegation expires on 12/31/14 and had to be renewed.

 

In its decision, the Agency found that the indefinite term will bring greater stability and security and enable continuous improvements in systems used in the structure and logistics, as well as contributing to the improvement of efficiency in contracting in the electricity sector.

 

Since the establishment of the new business model of the electricity sector in 2004, CCEE, based on successive delegations from ANEEL, has operated 54 auctions to buy and sell energy in the ACR, in its distinct modalities (New Energy Auction, Existing Energy , Reserve Energy, Alternative Sources, and Adjustment and Structuring Projects, these with partial participation), eight of which were performed in closed environment and 46 in open environment (Internet).
