Effects of the COVID‐19 pandemic on the Brazilian electricity consumption patterns

Abstract: Summary The implementation of mobility restrictions and home office schemes due to the COVID‐19 pandemic have influenced electricity consumption patterns and levels. This study analyzes the effect of physical distancing measures regarding mobility on the energy consumption trends for the Brazilian energy system and its subsystems (Northeast, North, South, and Southeast‐Midwest). Trends were evaluated by the Joinpoint software, and the analysis comprehended the period between January 1 and May 27, 2020. Daily l… Show more

“…5 Also, Germany faced a lesser volatile electricity market due to its larger DG share in the electricity supply sectors and their static B2B electricity markets. [72][73][74] Although all mentioned factors can affect the quality of the pandemic impact on the electricity sector, the most important factor is known the death rate and death toll as Reference 12 states that although France has a smaller electricity-based share in the economy (27% related to 45% in Germany), it faced away higher volatile electricity market due to its larger death toll and infected population which is aligned with our findings and results. 12,[75][76][77][78]…”

“…Ruiz and colleagues [1] found that electricity consumption in China increased due to large quarantine and health service demand. Other studies ascribed the decrease in energy consumption to governmental interventions in the USA and Canada [9] , [11] , [12] , [13] , in Brazil [14] and in Europe [7] , [15] , [16] , [17] .…”

“…In [11], it was investigated how COVID-19 cases affected Indian energy consumption during the pandemic crisis by testing whether the lockdown had a positive impact on energy consumption, also showing that richer regions were quicker to recover their energy consumption to the level before the lockdown. An analysis of the impact of physical distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic regarding mobility on the energy consumption trends for the Brazilian energy system and its subsystems was presented in [12]. A simulation study of the impact of confined measures due to COVID-19 on the energy demand for buildings in a virtual neighbourhood (district) in Sweden was presented in [13].…”
