Governor calls for changes in energy auctions

At a meeting in Brasilia with the Minister of Mines and Energia, Bento Albuquerque, the governor of Rio Grande do Sul, Eduardo Leite, called for a change in the format of energy auctions with the aim of bring competitiveness to the state.

Among the changes, the governor proposed that disputes address the “rental signal”, that is, which start to charge more for the transmission of customers and plants that require greater use of the system.

“The South and Southeast are the biggest energy claimants, and the installation of a power-generating plant depends on a smaller transmission, therefore generates lower losses, and this should be contemplated in auctions”, said Milk.

Thus, the minister was pleased with the meeting and suggested a meeting between technicians from Sema (Secretariat of the Environment and infrastructure) and the Ministry’s Department of Energy Planning to assess the criteria and discuss suggestions.
