784 applications for Brazilian national power tender

The Brazilian energy planning agency has registered over 19.4 GW in power projects for the country’s upcoming A-3 national tender.

Empresa de Pesquisa Energetica (EPE) will hold the tender on 18th November 2013, once applications are reviewed.

The projects registered include 629 wind projects (15.04GW), 119 solar plants (3.02GW), 17 hydro power plants (340MW), two biogas power plants (39MW), 15 biomass plants (504MW) and two natural-gas fired power plants (469MW).

A-3/2013, which is the first auction in the country’s regulated market to accept solar and waste-to-energy projects, requires developers to complete the projects by 1 January 2016.

Along with this, the federal auction also requires developers to ensure transmission lines for their projects are also in place by the same date.
