The capacity of electricity generation is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.06 percent in the next three years, with the highest growth in the renewable energy sector. The overall share of hydro energy in fuel mix is expected to decline by 4-5 percent by 2019, as Brazil is aiming to balance the lopsided fuel mix of the country. The thermal power capacity expansion is expected to evolve mainly from natural gas-fueled power plants, however, due to the faster growth of renewables, the overall thermal power share is expected to remain the same. Hydro generation capacity of 12.7 GW is expected to be added by 2024 as the government is aiming to reduce its dependency on hydropower share.
