Brazil contracted 1GW of new wind capacity at R$98/MWh ($23.52) in Friday's A-6 regulated market tender, slightly higher than the previous rounds in April and in 2018, confirming price stability for the technology.

“The tender ends successfully with adequate average prices which will benefit the end consumer,” says Elisa Bastos, board member at Brazil’s power regulator Aneel.

Among leading winners of wind contracts were China's CGN with 218MW of projects from newly bought Atlantic Energia, Norway's Statkraft with 375MW of projects, also from a recent acquisition, and local developer PEC Energia with 215MW, local consulting firm ePowerbay said in a post tender report.
