Brazil assumed the rotating Presidency of the group of the 20 largest economies in the world in December 2023, with the main objective of highlighting the transition to sustainable energy sources, promoting reforms in the global governance model and intensifying efforts in the fight against inequality and hunger.
In November 2023, the world will turn its eyes to Dubai, where the 28th edition of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) will take place, a crucial event on the global climate agenda. Organized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), COP28 represents an important milestone in the fight against climate change and in promoting a sustainable energy transition.
In the current context, replacing diesel with renewable energy sources is an urgent need and an opportunity to mitigate the effects of climate change. Diesel, a fossil fuel, is a major emitter of greenhouse gases (GHGs), contributing significantly to global warming. The transition to renewable energy is, therefore, a strategic action to reduce GHG emissions and move towards a more sustainable and ecological economy.
Green Hydrogen emerges as a promising solution to global energy challenges. The FIEC Summit 2023 in Ceará highlighted the importance and possibilities of H2V in the energy scenario.
Solar energy has emerged as a viable and sustainable solution in the global energy matrix, providing a clean, green alternative to fossil fuels. In Brazil, notable examples like Rio Poti Energia and Solário Carioca illustrate the positive impact and innovation in the solar energy sector.
Brazil, with its rich biodiversity, is poised to lead the green hydrogen revolution, a clean and renewable energy source. This move can strengthen the economy, attract foreign investments, and combat climate change.
Biogas and biomethane have stood out as promising alternatives in the Brazilian and global energy scenario. With the growing need for clean and sustainable energy sources, these biofuels emerge as viable and efficient solutions.
In a world increasingly aware of climate change and the environmental impacts of human activities, the transition to clean and sustainable energy has become a global priority. Institutions such as the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have emphasized the need for a swift and comprehensive energy transition to mitigate the effects of climate change and promote sustainable development.
The article "The Energy Transition and the Importance of Scope 3 for Industrial Decarbonization" addresses the process of change in the global energy landscape, in which companies, particularly carbon-intensive ones, seek to reduce their ecological footprint. These companies are aligning themselves with demands from investors and regulators by adopting cleaner and renewable energy sources.
The present time confronts us with a raw and undeniable reality: the urgency of dealing with climate change. Recent reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicate an acceleration of the effects of climate change, demanding more direct and effective measures from us. At the same time, we are witnessing an explosion of innovations in the renewable energy sector, with a growing awareness of the need for a transition to clean energy sources. Studies from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) show that renewable energy has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 70% by 2050.
