Policy & Regulations Overview

In 2018, 1.25 GW in installed capacity (48 wind farms) at two auctions - one A-4 (which consider starting delivery energy on 2022) and one A-6 (which consider starting delivery energy on 2024). These amounts represent 41.55 % of the total potential contracted in these auctions. The free energy market is growing in importance for wind energy sector; in 2018, at least three large free market auctions were done with the estimative (undisclosed numbers) of sold around 2 GW in installed capacity;
