What is essential to know about the Brazilian energy market?
Brazil’s power market stands out with a generation mix dominated by hydro, making up a significant 59% of centralised capacity and an impressive 71% of power generation. However, reliance on hydro comes with challenges: sensitivity to precipitation patterns and climate events could lead to an increased dependence on thermal fossil-fuelled plants. Nevertheless, this could change due to the significant renewable growth, which is ramping up with 59% of utility-scale solar and wind installed capacity deployed over the last 5 years.
