Energy Development Account for 2021 is estimated at $4.6 bn

Aneel opened public consultation to discuss the proposed budget for the Energy Development Account (EDC), whose preliminary value is R$24.1 billion ($4.6 bn). According to the agency, the proposal is equivalent to a reduction of 1.4%. This reduction was motivated by the effects of Provisional Measure 998/2020, which defined a new source of revenue for the CDE, using resources from R&D and energy efficiency programmes that were not executed or committed.
