WEBINARS

Global Transmission is organising 2 video interactions/webinars on ‘Power Transmission in Brazil: Plans and Opportunities’ starting July 16, 2020. The sessions will be with two of Brazil's leading authorities responsible for the development and promotion of the power transmission sector in the country. 

The first webinar is with Brazil's energy regulator Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica (ANEEL; National Electric Energy Agency) and the second is with Brazil’s Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME).

The live webinars will focus on the Brazil’s network development and investment plans, upcoming transmission auctions, and initiatives for making transmission sector more bankable and attracting private investment.

Each of these webinars will be a ‘stand-alone’ session. The duration of each of the video interactions will be 60-75 minutes.

The focused sessions will give an opportunity to hear from the leaders of these oraganisations in times when travel has become very restricted and it is uncertain when it may open up. We hope that the webinar/video interaction will provide a platform for a very useful exchange of information and ideas.
