Where is the Brazilian Electricity Sector heading? Observations on four issues

"The predominance of hydro generation and high-water storage capacity puts Brazil in an excellent position."

Brazil is a large emerging economy, and its electricity sector is quite unique. In some aspects, it could be an example to follow while, in others, there is wide scope for improvement.

Brazil may be considered as a leading example of a clean and renewable generation mix and of security of supply because of its abundant natural resources. The predominance of hydro generation and its high-water storage capacity puts the country in an excellent position. Added to this is the already substantial capacity of wind generation, biomass and the emerging (but already important) solar generation.
