Brazil - Assistance to Distribution Companies (EDCs)

The objective of these assignments was to assist the (EDCs) to determine the revenue requirements of the companies and the end-user tariffs that will allow recovering the efficient operation costs of service (OPEX and CAPEX) during the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tariff Setting Periods. This included discussion and modeling of methodologies to be applied by the Electricity Regulator ANEEL. We provided economic and technical assistance in various areas such as determination of efficient operating costs, technical and commercial losses indicators, bad debt analysis, development of an efficient investment plan, regulatory asset base, capital costs, market projection, productivity analysis and tariff structure.
