The Ten-Year Energy Expansion Plan (PDE) is an annual informative document elaborated by the EPE under the guidelines and support of the staff of the Secretariat of Energy Planning and Development (SPE) and the Secretariat of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuel (SPG), both at Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), Brazil. Showing, through scenarios and sensitivity analyses, how the planning envisages the development of the Brazilian energy system under different conditions of its progress, PDE provides important signals to guide the actions and decisions of the players in order to reconcile the forecasts of economic growth of the country and the necessary expansion of supply, in order to guarantee to society the reliability of energy supply at adequate costs, on a technically and environmentally sustainable basis.

In addition to seeking to explore the uncertainties of the economic recovery as a result of COVID-19 pandemic, as well as its impact on planning, the plan also reflects lessons learned from the recent period of water scarcity, as well as greater emphasis on issues related to the energy transition process.
