A utilização do sistema de microgeração de energia no Brasil: uma análise da geração distribuída e do sistema net metering

Machado, Marcelo do Amaral


This study aimed to analyze the impacts that decentralization of the electric power generation can cause to the national electric matrix. Growing demand for electric energy resulting from the technological advance of modern society, trends towards the construction of a sustainable low carbon economy, attempts to mitigate global warming and difficulty to maintain supplies due to climate change have raised prices and jeopardized the supply in large cities. Therefore, changes in the electric system must be carried out. An alternative is the distributed generation from renewable sources. It enables consumers to generate their own energy in a decentralized way by using the electricity grid to negotiate their production in a compensation system. This modality has been experiencing exponential growth in Brazil since 2015, when Norm 482 was updated. In order to better understand the revolution that has been occurring in electric energy generation, distribution and consumption, this study aimed to show the state of the art of Distributed Energy Generation in the world and in Brazil by analyzing political, economic and social aspects that may affect energy consumers.
