Electricity market frequently asked questions
China’s national demand is poised to surge at around 2-3% CAGR during 2019–2024. In addition, China is among the chief producers of renewable energy. In 2019, the country produced nearly 600 TWh of electricity from wind and solar power plants.
With the significant demand dip due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several electricity generators in Brazil have witnessed a decline in revenues. As such, the government raised a bail-out package of BR$ 14.8 Bn to help the electricity suppliers for contract settlement and utilization of the transmission system.
Australia’s electricity price decreased by around 14.6% and averaged about $43/MWh in August 2020. The key factors driving this trend were the notable rise in relatively low-cost offers, with a 2% decline in the operational demand.
Major end-users in Australia’s electricity market include automotive, residential, industrial, commercial, and healthcare sectors. While the electricity demand slumped considerably in the industrial and commercial domains, the residential load surged due to nationwide lockdowns. Further, the gradual resumption of automobile operations and constant demand from healthcare institutes will bring Australia’s electricity market back on track.
Brazil’s electricity consumption dropped during Q2 2020, amidst COVID-19-induced stressors, hitting suppliers’ bottom lines. However, the explosive usage of cooling appliances during the summer season is expected to keep the electricity demand intact.
The subsequent plant shutdowns during Q1 2020 amidst the COVID-19 crisis have drastically affected China’s electricity demand. However, Beroe’s analysis has highlighted demand recovery since Q2 2020.
