NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The Brazilian energy management services (EMS) market is still in a nascent growth stage. However, competitors expect double-digit growth, mainly because of governmental incentives in energy efficiency programs. Customer awareness is expected to increase, although there is apprehension in investing in such long-term payback projects. Moreover, the funding offer, especially from the government, will have a considerable growth until 2017. In 2012, the market is estimated in US$ 697.3 million. Considerable growth is expected in the construction sector until 2016 as a result of the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016.
•Since 2001, after the electric power blackout in Brazil, the Brazilian government has been interested in structuring public policies to reduce energy consumption.
•The National Plan for Energy Efficiency (PNEF) and PROCEL, a national electricity conservation plan, are two government initiatives that are shifting the market. PNEF estimates a x xper cent energy consumption reduction per year through 2030.
•Financial barriers are still the main challenge for service providers. However, the Social and Economic Development National Bank (BNDES) is intended to offer credit to energy service companies (ESCOs) and to projects in the energy efficiency sector.
•Moreover, the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) created a program for energy efficiency, which requires utilities to invest x x per cent of their net operational revenue in energy efficiency programs.
•Regulation that pertains to the free contracting environment is viewed as an opportunity for ESCOs to enter the market by first offering consulting services for migration and then by offering energy management and energy efficiency services.
•For 2012, the market size is estimated at $ x xmillion.
•Energy management services (EMS) are not yet a priority for Brazilian companies and are seen more as an expenditure than as an investment.

•ESCOs and EMS companies in Brazil are still structuring themselves and the market: Most of the companies are in the southeast region, offer many different services, and have a contracting model that is not standardized.
•The arrival of foreign manufacturing companies has created an opportunity for small Brazilian companies to develop strategic partnerships (i.e., as retail sellers, by providing maintenance or technical assistance, offering complementary products, or initiating co-branding strategies).
•Brazilian EMS services still face a lack of qualified professionals, thus some companies do not have yet considerable technical and management expertise.
