Enabling PV Brazil

Framework Assessment for the Photovoltaic Business Opportunities in Brazil

The project aimed at contributing to the sustainable deployment of solar PV in Brazil by exploring the new potential within the ANEEL Resolution 482/2012 (RN 482/2012), which for the first time established a compensation scheme (net metering) for distributed generation, as well as by analyzing the energy auctions for large size systems. The compensation scheme was introduced in 2012 and a specific solar PV auction at national level was announced in mid-2014, enabling new business models and the possibility to reduce consumer electricity bills by using electricity produced on-site. To this end, the report describes the legal and administrative framework of the above-mentioned policy options, creating a favorable business environment for installing solar PV systems in Brazil. Based on report findings, a website was developed in order aiming at strengthening cooperation and knowledge transfer between relevant stakeholders and international investors in Brazil and Germany.

In close collaboration with Policy Consulting department the Business Consulting unit contributed with calculations on the economic feasibility of different business models, including sensitivity analyses for different policy options and with a cash flow modelling tool that covered the auction model and power purchase agreements for PV projects in Brazil.
