According to Márcio Felix, Executive Secretary of the Ministry of Mines and Energy, the Federal government has considered the realization of a new auction, even this year, to hire new natural gas hydroelectric power plants to replace the oil units with Contracts up to 2024.
The purpose of this proposal is to increase the supply of energy cheaper than oil thermals in the Northeast region. However, contracting can be shocked by the lack of demand in energy distributors, who enter as purchasers of the production of the ventures made viable in government auctions for new oil generation plants.
The auction proposal was presented by the state Energy research Company (EPE). The measure will be debated between the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL), the National Electrical System Operator (ONS) and the Electric Energy Marketing Chamber (CCEE).
