Modernization of the electricity sector brings new role to distributors

The modernisation of the electricity sector must change the role of energy distributors. Experts believe the increased migration to the free market will transform dealerships in providing infrastructure services to ensure reservation of capacity. "We are facing a new era in which the distributors will provide assurance to consumers of electricity to meet any needs", the Chief Executive of the Association of the industry of Energy cogeneration (Cogen), Newton Duarte. The Distributor has the role of buying power from the generator and the captive consumers. These contracts are signed via energy auctions and are long-term, between 15:30 years. In the free trading environment, consumers can negotiate directly the buying and selling of energy with the generator, or through retailers. With the expansion of this market, the operation of distributors will be impacted. "The distributors will gradually reduce your role as buyer of energy through auctions. The focus will be to act more effectively in your main job, which is the wire, "says Sapphire Energy market analyst, Lucas Rodrigues. The President of the Brazilian Association of electric power distributors (Abradee), Nelson milk, shares a similar vision. "The role of market power does not bring any gain to the Distributor. They will focus on your business network operation and maintenance of assets to carry out the transport of energy to the consumer. " For specialists, this transformation must be accompanied by the binômia fare that separates the collection of energy infrastructure investments so that the Distributor is properly remunerated. "At the time of purchase of energy, there will be freedom of negotiation. But everyone will pay by wire infrastructure, "explains the President of Commercial energy, Christopher Vlavianos. Currently, the power consumption is about one third of the fare. The rest is made up by the wire and taxes. Binômia tariff proposal is being discussed in national electric Energy Agency (Aneel). The forecast is for it to be open a public hearing on the subject in the second half of 2018 and the vote to happen next year. "When there is a separation of power, consumption will be paid directly to the generator", points out the President of the Board of Directors of the electric energy trading Chamber (CCEE), Rui Altieri. "This will ensure the investment for distribution. The concept for the migration of the free market is in power. The wire service will always be captive. " The greater opening of the energy market is one of the points covered by the Bill drafted by the Ministry of mines and energy (MME). The text provides for the gradual inclusion of all high and medium voltage consumers in the free contracting environment until January 2026. "This transformation will not occur from 1 hour to another", says Rao. "The PL does not open for low voltage consumers, but stipulates that the subject be discussed until 2022. Until then, the following distribution companies serving this captive consumers. " Distributed generation Another element that will impact the performance of distributors is distributed generation (DG), when the customer generates your own electricity from a renewable source and connects directly to the local distribution network. "Distributed generation will happen, it is inevitable. It takes the binômia fare for all pay for the infrastructure and ensure investment in construction of distribution undertakings, "says milk. See the GD extension Altieri as a global trend. "But no consumer is going to disconnect from the network without having a reservation of capacity." It is in this context that the distributors would provide a secure service to supply energy needs occasional power, as in the case of damaged equipment or consumption above the contracted volume. "The consumer pays only the wire, no energy, but can choose to hire a safe supply with a generator", indicates Duarte. Altieri believes distributed generation benefits the distributors by making unnecessary investments in network expansion. "A condo puts into operation a gas generation process and avoids this spent the Distributor, you can focus on improving the quality of service." Milk points out that these investments would be in new technologies and networks smarter. "Over time, will be aggregated new services, changing the profile of network operator to provide services." Duarte also highlights that the distributors have greater freedom of energy procurement. "In an auction, the Distributor doesn't know where you are buying. It may be a distant and demand-generating investments in transmission lines. Buy from distributed generation allows a logistics more interesting. " Understand the Case in the current model, generating energy distributor purchase and delivery to the consumer of the captive market. These contracts are signed via energy auctions and are long-term, between 15:30 years. The consumer pays, wire and energy taxes in the price. In the free market, consumers can negotiate directly the buying and selling of energy with the generator, or through retailers. Consequently, the Distributor would act as a service provider and supplier of infrastructure capacity reserve for the consumer. The Distributor would be remunerated through the binômia fare, which separates investment on energy consumption.
