Brazil’s Electricity Regulatory Agency (Aneel), the entity that regulates the country’s energy market, has authorized the construction of several wind projects expected to amount to about 140 MW.
Two of the plants, Itarema VII (21 MW) and Aura Mangueira VII (22 MW), will be operated by independent power producers.
Aneel has also given the green light to the Tacaico (18.8 MW), Pedra do Geronimo (30 MW) and Pau Ferro (30 MW) projects. Enel Green Power SpA owns all three.
Odebrecht Energia will build Corredor do Senandes II (18.9 MW), which is included in the 108-MW Corredor do Senandes project.
