The Brazilian electricity sector is suffering from a 7-year long drought, but system operators managed to avoid rationing measures through the dispatch of thermal power plants and increasing renewable generation.

In this report, we provide a complete view on these issues. We also touch system fundamentals, policy and regulation, prices and auction results. This version also features a section highlighting the regulated auction framework to award power purchase agreements for thermal power plants.
