November 22 (Solar) – The Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy has allowed six renewable energy projects with a combined capacity of 179.5 MW to issue infrastructure debentures.
With the permits, the schemes now have the status of priority projects which is needed to speed up their implementation, according to decrees published last week by national power sector regulator Aneel.
More details on the projects are available in the table below.
|Foz do Estrela||Small hydro||29.5 MW||Parana|

The photovoltaic (PV) plants are part of the 150-MW Guaimbe solar complex, owned by the Brazilian unit of US power producer AES Corp (NYSE:AES), while the small HPP is controlled by Brookfield Energia Renovavel SA, the local subsidiary of Canada's Brookfield Asset Management Inc (TSE:BAM.A).
