Renewable sources grow in generation in the first half of July

07/23/2020 | 19h37

Renewable energy sources registered growth in generation in the first 15 days of July, in comparison with the same period last year. Hydraulic (7.2%), wind (10.7%) and photovoltaic (30.9%) showed an increase in generation, according to the preliminary data that make up the Biweekly InfoMercado bulletin released by the Electric Energy Trading Chamber - CCEE .


Thermoelectric generation fell by 34.2%, but in the group, biomass plants increased by 6.8% in the first 15 days of July, compared to the same period in 2019, from 4,166 average MW to 4,452 average MW.


The data also indicates a decrease of 1.1% in energy production in the National Interconnected System (SIN) in the first half of July, falling from 61,370 average MW last year to 60,700 average MW in 2020 - the result of less restrictive isolation measures. Social. The generation of energy self-producers, on the other hand, grew 11.1% in July.




Energy consumption at the SIN in the first 15 days of July decreased 2.4% compared to the same period last year, dropping from 58.882 average MW to 57.464 average MW, the lowest variation since the beginning of social isolation.


In the Regulated Contracting Environment (ACR), which brings together consumers whose energy purchase is made by distributors, the drop in demand was 3.5%, closing at 39,023 average MW, due to the migration of consumers to the free market and because of the restrictions caused by combating Covid-19. After migration was eliminated, the fall would be 1.4%.


In the Free Contracting Environment (ACL), whose consumers can choose the energy supplier, directly or via traders, consumption presented the same volume of energy consumed in the previous year, 18,442 average MW, but when purging the impact of the migration of captive consumers , the ACL would fall by 4.6%.


Most of the branches of activity showed growth in energy consumption in the free market. The biggest increases were in the sanitation (30.7%), commerce (12.8%) and beverages (9.8%) sectors, however this increase is directly linked to the migration of consumers to the free market. When purging the effect of migration to the ACL, there is a slight increase in consumption only in the sectors of sanitation (4.1%), beverages (4.3%) and non-metallic minerals (2.8%).
