January 23 (Renewables Now) - Brazil's power sector regulator Aneel approved on Tuesday the 363 average megawatts (MWa) of power and capacity awarded in the auctions held on December 7, 2018.

Dubbed A-1 and A-2, the tenders targeted energy from existing power plants.

The approved schemes include one 4-MWa contract secured in the A-1 auction, as well as nine other contracts, two of which for natural gas, for a combined capacity of 359 MWa in the A-2 bidding. Power supply is scheduled to begin on January 1, 2019 and January 1, 2020, respectively.

The contracts were negotiated in Brazil's regulated market for capacity availability, mostly focused on biomass and natural gas, and for electricity volumes, where the energy sources were not specified.
