Regulation of Electromobility in Brazil

In 2018, the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (ANEEL), the National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (Inmetro) and GIZ have promoted a series of activities to establish a conducive environment to advance electromobility in Brazil through technical regulation.


Within this context of innovation, ANEEL released the first national market regulation on June 19, 2018, Normative Resolution Nº 819. The regulation establishes the procedures and conditions for carrying out activities related to electric vehicles recharging by concessionaires and license holders of the public electricity distribution service.


Later, in November 2018, during Inmetro’s 1st Conference Regarding Smart Vehicles, a workshop was implemented by GIZ to gather contributions from regulators, academy and the private sector to point out the main topics regarding electromobility standards and regulations. At this workshop, which is part of a continuous technical dialogue, ANEEL’s regulation was used as a reference and starting point for the discussions.


During the workshop, the main topics to be discussed in 2019 were defined: 1) Standardization of the recharging system; 2) Vehicles homologation; 3) Interoperability and recharge infrastructure; 4) Regulation of urban emissions; 5) Reverse logistic. These subjects will be further discussed and developed within the next two workshops, planned for May and August 2019.


The activities are conducted within the technical cooperation project PROMOB-e between the German Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) and the Brazilian Ministry of Economy, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
