Evaluation of the Energy Efficiency Program of Electric Utilities and Proposal for Its Regulatory Improvements in Brazil

1 de novembro de 2011

IEI-LA was commissioned to evaluate the Energy Efficiency Program (EEP), the largest Brazilian program in energy efficiency in terms of investments, which mobilizes one of the main actors for the implementation of efficiency measures: the Brazilian electricity distribution utilities. Each distributor has its own mandatory EPP. EPP was evaluated from the strategic point of view of a program funded by electricity consumers. The EPP is regulamented and monitored by the Brazilian National Regulator of Electric Energy (ANEEL).

This study was carried out for the Office of Research and Development and Energy Efficiency of the Brazilian National Regulator of Electric Energy (ANEEL), with support from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) during the months of September and October, 2011.
