In September, the Nova A-5 energy auction of 2021 will be held. The highlight goes to the registered RSU energy recovery projects, which applied 12 projects with 315 MW. In total, 1,694 projects were registered, totaling 93.9 GW of supply.
Brazil reached the historic milestone of 9 GW of operational power in large photovoltaic plants and small and medium systems.

Do you know what a reserve energy auction is? In Brazil, auctions are the main form of contracting energy.

In force since 2009, the old gas law established norms for the exploration of economic activities of transport, import, export, processing, regasification and commercialization. However, the law prevented the development of the natural gas market, as a single company, Petrobras, held a monopoly in several segments of the gas chain.
Do you know what shared generation is? Normative Resolution No. 482, created by the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL), published in 2012, created rules for the segment of distributed generation in Brazil. Then, in 2015, through Normative Resolution 687, the standard received some changes that facilitated consumer adherence. It increased the term for using energy credits and resetting the power of the systems.
The generation of energy from biomass has a current installed capacity of 15,604 MW, representing 9% of the national electrical matrix. With 578 thermoelectric plants, this source is in fourth place, behind hydro, wind and natural gas.
