Wind projects were awarded BRL 136/MWh for a 20 year period. This is higher than the BRL 124.43/MWh awarded last November to 867MW of wind, and BLR 109/MWh for 2.3GW in December 2013. Despite Brazil’s reliance on hydropower, which has seen a reduction in availability in recent years, the auction allocated 400MW for small hydro projects. No large hydropower or solar projects were awarded. The auction requires power supply to begin in five years, as noted in the name A5, from January 2019. At Brazil Windpower 2014 in August, Mauricio Tolmasquim, chairman of the EPC...
