The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) ordered the creation of a Governance, Risk and Control Committee.
This initiative was created via directive 142/2017, and the goal is to create strategic governance policies for the electric power sector. The committee will be made up members from the MME, the Department of Geology, Mining and Mineral Transformation, the Department of Energy Planning and Development, the Department of Electric Energy and Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels.
According to the Official Gazette (DOU), in addition to monitoring and analyzing strategies and programs the MME considers a priority, the group will also define risk management policies for these projects, prioritizing measures that deliver the best cost-benefit for the country.
