The consumption of electricity in Brazil has witnessed an upward trend in recent years due to positive economic growth and rising consumer class. This increase in energy consumption has outstripped economic growth, largely because of the population increase as there are more than two Million new consumers a year. This emerging economy with a population of more than 190 Million has lower per capita energy consumption as compare to the industrialized world.
As per research report “Brazil Power Sector Outlook 2016” finding, demand for electricity in the commercial sector grew by 6.3% followed by residential sector at 4.6% during 2011. The increase in the number of commercial sector consumers and the opening of new malls and stores led to the high growth in the consumption of the commercial sector as compared to other sectors in the consumption matrix. At the same time the residential and the industrial sector saw a growth of 4.6% and 2.3% respectively. Other segments like rural, government and infrastructure, witnessed a combined growth of 2.4% during 2011.
