EPE’s president Luiz Barroso said this week that a revision to improve connection arrangements is possible but only for tenders next year. The National Grid Operator (ONS) also published a statement reiterating the grid-connection rules.

In early October the government published a technical note detailing the transmission capacity of the country’s 125,000km national grid and said that over 70% of 35GW of solar and wind projects would not be able to participate in the tender.
