The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MINE) and the National Electric System Operator (ONS) have signed an agreement for an investment of R$ 31.6 million under the Technical Assistance Program for the Energy and Mineral Sectors (Projeto Meta), according to a recent official release.
Meta Project. operations in the field of electricity
The money is to be used for three structural projects in the power sector by 2025, according to a ministry release from the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MEP).
The results of the work will allow the National Electricity System Operator (ONS) to provide more transparency and visibility to the services provided to the public, agents and institutions in the energy sector, allowing it to act more objectively in the search for costs. reducing and increasing allowances, highlights the official disclosure of the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME:).
Evolution of SIN and ONS
The first project will assess the evolution of the National Interconnected System (SIN) and the operation of the National Electricity System Operator (ONS), covering aspects such as reliability, flexibility, flexibility, stabilityaccessibility and security.
According to the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), another structural project under the agreement will test the potential impacts of climate change on flow patterns, precipitation and other meteorological variables affecting the SIN.
Changes in atmospheric patterns and potential impacts will also be explored. In addition, it will be possible to more economically construct flow scenarios that will serve as subsidies for maintenance studies, taking into account both operational criteria and extension of transmission lines.
Investing in renewable energy
Photovoltaic production, already the third largest source in Brazil, has uncertainties related to meteorological factors, causing inevitable deviations in forecasts, which lead the National Electric System Operator (ONS) to provide greater energy reserves to meet load fluctuations.
Such circumstances increase the cost of operation, thus generating more charges, reflecting potentially higher costs for the consumer, the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MEP) explained.
Advances in mining
The Meta Project is the result of a loan agreement between the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) for a total investment of USD 38 million.
The goal of the program is to facilitate the expansion and consolidation of progress in the energy and mining sectors, supporting competitiveness and growth. economic sustainable development of the country, as well as the institutional modernization of these sectors, the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MEP) said in a press release.
