Although the economic recession continues to affect the Brazilian non-hydroelectric renewable market in 2016 as the currency devaluation threatens multiple solar projects, reaffirmed government support and a return to positive growth in 2017 provide some upside to our outlook. The re-scheduling of the two reserve auctions to September and December in hope for an improved investment this year could reinforce the already strong project pipeline, whose major obstacles remain to be financial, as well as relate to an insufficient production chain in light of local content requirements. We currently see non-hydro capacity to grow by 9.5% in 2016, and 4.2% by 2017.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends


- For 2016, we expect overall non-hydro renewables to see a year-on-year capacity and generation growth of 10.7% and 16.7%, respectively. While capacity growth is significantly below 2015-levels, generation is increasing from last year's strong growth and the slump in domestic energy consumption levels as the wider economic downturn continues. For 2017, capacity and generation growth are forecast to fall to 9.5% and 7.6%, respectively. - Due to the political turmoil and economic uncertainty surrounding the impeachment of President Rousseff, auctions have been rescheduled. The first reserve energy auction, originally scheduled for late July, has been postponed until September 23. The second reserve auction initially planned for October 28 has been rescheduled to December 16. Also, the most recent power transmission auction, originally scheduled for September 2, 2016, has been postponed; the government had expected to attract investments of up to BRL12.6bn (USD4bn), but the Energy Ministry decided to review the terms of the auction to ensure interest from investors.

- Wind capacity forecasts for 2016 and 2017 have been readjusted to include more projects entering the market by the end of 2016, rather than 2017. Solar capacity growth remains at an unchanged, lower level, due to currency pressures and delayed auctions.
