Brazil’s Cemig to hold second wind, solar auction



In its first auction of this kind, held in June, the Brazilian power provider contracted 431.4 MW of wind and solar power. Selected projects in this new auction will have to start delivering power by January 2022.

Minas Gerais-based power company, Compañía Energética de Minas Gerais S.A. (CEMIG) – the fourth largest Brazilian energy company – will hold its next and second wind and solar power auction in September.

According to the auction’s call, selected projects will be granted PPAs with a duration ranging from 10 to 20 years, while the start of power delivery has been set for January 2022.

The auction, as well as that held in June, in which CEMIG contracted 431.4 MW of wind and solar power coming from 1.2 GW of power plants, is intended to provide the Brazilian company with the power generation capacity it recently lost, due to the concessions of four hydropower plants – in São Simão (1.7 GW), Miranda (404 MW), Jaguara (424 MW) and Volta Grande (380 MW) – previously run by CEMIG, to big players including Italy’s power utility, Enel; French energy company, Engie; and China’s State Power Investment Corporation. The start of power delivery for the first auction was also set for January 2022.

CEMIG provides power to 22 Brazilian states, and to Chile. The state of Minas Gerais has a stake of over 50% in the company.
