On November 16, the board of the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) approved the tender for the 2021 capacity reserve auction. The event is scheduled for December 21 and will focus on contracting thermoelectric plants.
The A-3 and A-4 energy auctions, in 2021, took place on July 8 and showed expressive numbers aimed at the generation of renewable energy in the country. Overall, the scenario was quite unfavorable. The reasons are the over-contracting forecast for the year by the Electric Energy Trading Chamber (CCEE) at 105.1%, the migration of medium and large consumers to the ACL and the small ones to distributed generation.
Do you know what a reserve energy auction is? In Brazil, auctions are the main form of contracting energy. Through them, concessionaires, licensees and authorized to distribute electricity ensure market service in the Regulated Contracting Environment (ACR). The auctions are carried out by the Electric Energy Trading Chamber (CCEE), by delegation from the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL).
