MME announces guidelines for A-1 and A-2 auctions

The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) has published guidelines for the holding of existing energy purchase auctions A-1 and A-2. The events should be promoted by the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) on December 3 of this year.

The rules were published in the Official Gazette (DOU) on Friday (11). According to the document, the start of the energy supply of the A-1 auction will begin on January 1, 2022 and end on December 31, 2023. In the A-2 auction, the start will take place January 1, 2023 and end on December 31, 2024.

It is worth remembering that the auctions were created to contract energy generated by plants already built and that are in operation, since these plants have a lower cost of production.
