In 2017, electric power consumption in Brazil rose by 0.8% y/y, the first increase in three years, as the country emerged from one of its deepest recessions in decades. The positive trend continued in 2018, when the uptick in electricity demand materialised across all major consumer categories, alleviating a situation of oversupply and prompting the government to resume the development of new power generation capacities. Nevertheless, this balancing of the domestic energy market could not prevent a continuous surge in electricity prices, as a series of unfavourable weather conditions that began in 2017 forced the country to rely on more costly thermal power plants (TPPs) to meet its electricity demand. This yet again underlined the urgent need to diversify Brazil’s electric energy mix – which is largely dominated by large-scale hydropower plants (HPPs) – and to reduce shortcomings in the country’s power transmission and distribution networks.
