More thermoelectric generation boosts Brazil's natural gas participation

Jul 10, 2001 02:00 AM

The expansion of the Brazilian thermoelectric generation park, which is occurring as a consequence of the current electrical energy crisis, has irreversibly boosted the participation of natural gas in the national energy matrix.
A proposal to stimulate the use of the fuel, presented by the Brazilian Association of Gas Distribution Companies (Abegas) to Pedro Parente, chief of the presidential staff and head of the new Council for Energy Crisis Management, estimates the market potential for Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo states to be equivalent to 10,800 MW.

In practice, if the country were to make an effort to substitute the use of electricity with natural gas in millions of shower heaters, ovens, room heaters and other equipment, the expansion of the natural gas market would represent the equivalent of 24 thermoelectric generation plants of 450 MW capacity each.
