Brazil Power Report Q1 2016 - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Nov 30 2015

Brazil will continue to offer numerous opp ortunities for power sector investors , despite a worsening of the country's economic recession. We hold a particularly positive outlook for the non-hydro renewables sector and the development of smart grids, underpinned by growing investor interest in the market. That said, high interest rates and continued currency weakness, along with a corruption investigation into public energy companies, will ma i ntain the power sector's growth rate below potential.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

A government probe called 'Operation Radioactivity' is investigating allegations of corrupt contracting practices at Brazil's state-owned utility Eletrobras. A commission hired by Eletrobras to carry out an internal investigation is focusing on three Amazonian hydropower projects and the Angra 3 nuclear power plant. The probe is expected to be completed by end-2015 and could result in write-offs and delays to proje cts implementation.

It was announced in August 2015 Brazilian firms Odebrecht, Camargo Correa, Andrade Gutierrez and Queiroz Galvao would withdraw from the consortium selected to build Brazil's Angra 3 nuclear plant. The firms, which are being investigated over bribery charges under operation Lava Jato, cited non-payment by Eletronuclear as the reason for their decision. Accordingly, we revised down our growth forecast for the Brazilian nuclear sector.
