ANEEL Energy Efficiency Program
Policy measure

The ANEEL (National Electrical Agency) Energy Efficiency Program is one of the major funding mechanisms for energy efficiency investments in Brazil. It accounted for BRL 1.4 billion between 2000 and 2007, and was to ensure that some BRL 300 million would be spent each year under ANEEL supervision to increase energy efficiency and reduce electrical losses in projects conducted mostly by energy services enterprises.

According to APERC (2011), the main outcomes of the ANEEL fund must be measured in “how much money gets distributed by them and thereby benefits energy efficiency projects”.

Between 2000 and 2005, a total of BRL 96.0 million were invested in industrial projects leading to energy savings of 376 GWh per year. This translated into a saved capacity of 59 MW over the period. Between 2006 and 2007, a total of BRL 26.4 million were invested in industrial projects, resulting in energy savings of 38.9 GWh per year. This translated into a saved capacity of 7.7 MW over the period. (APERC, 2011)
