Wave of Energy Auctions to Trigger $8.2 Billion in Brazil Spending

Brazil is expecting to see about 27 billion reais ($8.2 billion) invested into the country’s energy infrastructure over the next six years, the result of an end-of-year flurry of auctions aimed at boosting its electricity capacity. Energy companies won contracts to build about 5,000 kilometers (3,100 miles) of new power lines and more than 4.5 gigawatts of power plants, in a trio of auctions over the past week.
