New market study, "Brazil Power Report Q3 2011", has been published

New Energy market report from Business Monitor International: "Brazil Power Report Q3 2011"

 
PRLog - Jul. 24, 2011 - According to BMI's new power industry forecasts, Brazil's electricity consumption is expected to rise sharply in the coming years, increasing from an estimated 448.01TWh in 2010 to 582.43TWh by the end of 2015. We also anticipate a hike in the country's power generation, as the government attempts to meet growing demand and diversify its electricity mix, increasing both nuclear and renewables.

Hydro-electric sources are expected to remain the dominant fuel for electricity generation in the coming years, even though the country has been trying to diversify its electricity generation mix away from this power source because of the inherent risk of power shortages during times of severe drought. We also note that an estimated 16% of power generated has historically been lost in the transmission and distribution process due to the distance between power-generating facilities and end-user markets. These weaknesses in the transmission infrastructure have certainly played a significant role in exposing the country to nationwide power cuts, and the Brazilian government will need to address the problem and increase investments in the coming years.

On top of these long-term elements, key developments for Brazil's power sector include:

* The 11,200MW Belo Monte hydroelectric power plant project in the Amazon rainforest has been facing continuous delays and difficulties. The controversial US$17bn project, which has provoked protests in Brazil and been criticised by the international community over its impact on the environment and native Indian tribes in the area, saw its construction work suspended from February to March 2011 due to concerns over its environmental standards. Furthermore, in May 2011 three Brazilian private-sector construction companies have formally asked to leave the Norte Energia group that will develop the controversial dam. BMI has long dismissed the project on environmental, financial and economic grounds, and we are not surprised by the multiple delays in the project's execution and the concerns raised by the private sector companies.
* Brazilian power company MPX will start building the Parnaiba thermal power plant by Q311, The 1.86 gigawatt (GW) plant is expected to start commercial operations within two and a half years following the start of construction work. Conventional thermal generating sources provide only a small part of Brazil's electricity supply, especially when compared to other big developing economies. The country has however been investing strongly in its LNG infrastructure and is now attempting to increase the number of planned power plants that will use coal or gas.
* Brazilian energy research company EPE has announced that the country's electricity industry expects to invest more than BRL8.5bn (US$5.1bn) on transmission expansion projects through 2015. The anticipated investments will be directed towards the construction of more than 5,450km of transmission lines in the country. Around BRL4.4bn (US$2.6bn) will be required for transmission lines, primarily in northern Amazon region, while BRL1.84bn (US$1.1bn) will be needed for northern Brazil. In addition, the north east region will need BRL1.29bn (US$0.77bn) and construction of new substations will require around BRL1.8bn (US$1.08bn).
