Abstract:

The constrained financing environment and currency slump that characterized Brazil s economic recession in --------- are having an impact on the growth outlook of the country s power sector. In August it was reported that the Brazilian government is likely to cancel the ---- A-- auction for new power projects, after delaying a reserve auction for wind and solar to December. ...In August it was reported that the Brazilian government is likely to cancel the ---- A-- auction for new power projects, after delaying a reserve auction for wind and solar to December.

In addition to Celg-D, Eletrobras plans to sell six of its power distribution subsidiaries in ----, in order to reduce its debt load and focus on the power generation business.

...BMI View:, With the economy returning to growth in ---- and the government committed to attracting investment in the power and renewables sectors, the Brazilian electricity market will offer opportunities to project developers and power sector investors.
