Brazil - Energy Sector Technical Assistance Project (Inglês)

The objective of this four-year Energy Sector Technical Assistance Loan (ESTAL) for Brazil is to help ensure sustainable implementation of the Government's ongoing energy sector reform program, through technical assistance in specific areas, and by providing a mechanism for continuing dialogue with policy-makers about longer-term sector reform. This operation focuses on the power and gas sector, where there are more urgent reform needs. The hydrocarbons sector is also covered through some special issues on gas and to a more limited way on oil, although the scope of institutional strengthening embodies all areas under the purview of the energy sector authority. The ESTAL would consist of five components, aimed at furthering reforms in five main priority areas identified by the Government: 1) Market development and regulation - correcting problems with the regulatory system and with the wholesale and retail markets, with a view to providing the correct incentives for contracting and expansion in the sector; 2) Benefits to the poor - increasing access to and affordability of electricity, natural gas and LPG including through tariff reform with targeted, smart subsidies focused on those who are most in need; 3) Environmental management - enhancing the sector's environmental framework, management, capabilities, and licensing procedures; 4) Expansion planning - developing a strategy and methodologies for meeting future demand, integrating multiple sources of energy, as well as demand and supply side possibilities; and 5) Institutional strengthening - enhancing the Government's capacity for policy-making, and its ability to implement reform measures, coordinate multiple initiatives, and monitor their progress.
