Energy Efficiency Description:Since 1998, the Brazilian energy regulator ANEEL has imposed obligations on electric power distribution companies to make investments that reduce electric waste, including through undertaking energy efficiency measures. Since 2005, a minimum of 50% of those investments must be allocated to low-income energy efficiency programmes. To fulfil this obligation companies must present projects to ANEEL; guidelines for preparing programmes have been set by ANEEL in 2000, as well as in specific resolutions. Projects and programmes are included in the companys Annual Program against Electrical Energy Waste. The programme must establish goals, in terms of actions taken as well as financial investments, pursuant to the guidelines. In addition, since 2007 ANEEL has required that evaluation plans need to be provided for delivered programmes. In 2005-06 and 2006-07, low-income programmes made up over 50% of utility investments in energy efficiency programmes, totalling 63% and 66% of investments respectively. Utility investments totalled USD 130 million in 2005-06 and USD 80 million in 2006-07. Industry programmes made up 15% and 6% respectively, while other programmes accounted for 22% and 28%.
