Study aiming on identifying the main challenges deriving from the integration of variable, renewable energy sources into the Brazilian energy and electrical system.
In Brazil and other countries worldwide the importance of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar (PV) is growing.
One of the main goals of power system planning and operation is to comply with the reliability and economic feasibility criteria established for supplying electricity to consumers. Pursuing this goal, investment plans and operating strategies must foresee the possibility of failure of single components and other problems in the power system. Long-term planning for the Brazilian power system makes provision for significant expansion of renewable sources of energy with seasonal generation characteristics and/or intermittent operations (such as solar and wind power). In parallel to a gradual reduction in the regularisation capabilities of Brazil's hydropower segment, the integration of intermittent generation sources into its National Interconnected System (SIN) underscores the need for studies buttressing knowledge about the effects of renewable energy sources on the structural performance of the SIN.
This study is aiming on identifying the main challenges deriving from the integration of variable, renewable energy sources into the Brazilian energy and electrical system. Inputs for potential solutions for those challenges identified should be developed and presented in the report taking into account the peculiarities of the Brazilian energy system.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has commissioned GIZ to implement the overall project. The Caribbean countries are heavily dependent on fossil fuels for energy production. At the same time, regional and national players in the area of Renewable and Energy Efficiency are still not in the position to comply with the political, organizational and technical demands of a growing market. The final target group for the REETA interventions are the people of the Caribbean as it is intended to reduce their energy cost and dependency on fossil fuels, which leads to improved living conditions. Within this assignment, the GIZ needs support by a Firm of Consultants, which is able to provide regional and international short-term experts for different sectors to support the CARICOM Energy Unit as well as Caribbean Development Bank and other national development and commercial banks or financial institutions.

The present contract is supposed to support the Ministry of Energy in Madagascar in the evaluation and validation of the technical and financial feasibility studies as well as in the process of negotiating power purchase agreements between the state-owned utility Jirama and the private operators for the 4 hydro power stations.
Madagascar‘s low electrification rate of about 15 % limits the social and economic development oft he country. Service delivery in the education, health and communication sector are extremely restricted. Economic activities cannot be run on a continuous and sustainable basis because of limited and unreliable electricity supply. However, the country's potential in renewable energy resources is very high. Only about 2 % of Madagascar’s total hydropower potential of 7,800 MW is currently being deployed. Since 2015, the Government of Madagascar is treating improvements in the energy sector as high priority. The political will to develop the renewable energy potential in order to increase electricity supply is very high. The ambitious aims for scaling-up the power supply in the country are to be reached in cooperation with the private sector on the basis of concession models. However, neither the juridical and administrative framework conditions, nor the capacities of the public and private actors are sufficient in order to implement this ambitious energy transition independently. Therefore, the project supports the Ministry of Water, Energy and Petroleum and its subordinated agencies (Agency for Rural Electrification ADER and Electricity Regulatory Authority ORE) with the further development and implementation of the country's energy policy and institutional and legislative framework, among others for the integration of renewable energy resources into the main electricity grid, run by the state-owned utility Jirama. According to estimations made by Jirama, electricity demand will increase by 8 % per year up to 2030. Therefore, in order to reach the ambitious goal of serving 70 % of the overall population with reliable electricity by 2030, an additional generation capacity of 460 MW up to 2020 and 700 MW up to 2030 are needed.
It is against this background that, in 2015, the Government of Madagascar founded the “Programme Hydroélectriques Prioritaires” (PHP). PHP prioritizes the development of 5 hydro power sites as well as 13 hybrid sites (hydropower combined with PV and/or biomass). In late 2015, the Ministry of Energy published a tender for the development of 4 hydro power sites (42-300 MW) on the basis of IPP and EPC contracts and signed provisional adjudications with 4 consortia of private companies for the development of detailed feasibility studies and plans for the realization of the projects at hand.
The present contract is supposed to support the Ministry of Energy in the evaluation and validation of the technical and financial feasibility studies as well as in the process of negotiating power purchase agreements between Jirama and the private operators for the 4 hydro power stations. It is the aim of the consultancy to strengthen the capacities of the Ministry of Energy and its subordinated bodies ADER and ORE in supervising and steering privately operated energy supply projects from project development stage up to signing IPP contracts and negotiating power purchase agreements.
Create a baseline study "Expot- and project financing in sustainable energy solutions" under the Export Initiative Energy of the Ministry of Economy and Energy.
The "energy revolution" is one of the most internationally acclaimed reform projects in Germany. She characterizes the appearance of Germany abroad, has great influence on perception as appreciation German strategies, services and products and is now also part of the core brand for the quality seal "Made in Germany".
The objective of the project is ‘The prerequisites for a broadly effective use of energy-efficient propulsion systems in Brazil have been created’.
The project is based on federal level, but pilot projects shall be implemented in cities and states that still need to be selected.
Brazil published new climate indicators in September 2015 and announced to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 43 % till 2030 compared to 2005. In addition to the in-creased use of renewable energy, Brazil is striving for an energy efficiency improvement of 10 percent. The transport sector is responsible for more than half the consumption of fossil fuels and Brazilian energy-related GHG emissions. According to the Ministry of the Environ-ment (Ministério do Meio Ambiente, MMA), Brazil's direct carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have increased from about 60 000 000 tonnes (t) CO2 in 1980 to 213 000 000 t CO2 in 2012 (Germany 2014: 161 000 000 T CO2). Despite the strong use of ethanol and biodiesel in Brazil, 49 per cent of emissions are due to the combustion of diesel fuel and 33 per cent to the combustion of gasoline.
According to a forecast by the Brazilian Energy Planning Authority (Empresa de Pesquisa Energética, EPE), the fleet of passenger cars is expected to triple by 2050, of which 11.8 million (about 9 per cent) are purely electric vehicles. Guided by the global trend, Brazil is also increasingly focusing on energy-efficient propulsion systems (electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid systems), especially in local public transport and municipal transport, to meet its climate requirements. Investments in the construction of production capacities and the acqui-sition of electrically operated buses are supported by the development bank BNDES. How-ever, market and vehicle approvals for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles are hardly growing, since the prerequisites for the broad use of energy-efficient propulsion systems are missing (core problem).
The objective of the project is therefore: ‘The prerequisites for a broadly effective use of en-ergy-efficient propulsion systems have been created’.
The project is based on federal level, but pilot projects shall be implemented in cities and states that still need to be selected.
The DKTI project will work on the meso and micro level and is divided into three components: (1) the development of a strategy to promote energy efficient propulsion systems; (2) standardization and regulation, and (3) business models for energy-efficient propulsion sys-tems. The focus will be on plug-in hybrids and purely electric vehicles (technology approach) in public transport, as well as in private and public fleets (fields of application). Experiences from demonstration projects are part of the design of promotion and incentive mechanisms.
Cooperation with the private sector (e.g., vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, energy suppliers or fleet operators) is sought. The scope and content of the co-operations shall be determined during the duration of the project.
