A geração de energia e a eficiência energética

Power generation and energy efficiency

Energy efficiency became a topic of discussion shortly after the oil crisis in the 1970s, when it was realized that fossil reserves would not be cheap and abundant forever. In addition, it was also at this time that there was a greater awareness of the damage that the use of this type of fuel generated for the environment. As a result, it was necessary to think of alternatives to maintain energy generation, using other sources and improving the efficiency of those already used.

A importância do gás natural na transição energética

The importance of natural gas in the energy transition

How important is natural gas in the energy transition? The change in the energy matrix of countries is already a reality. However, each nation opts for sources that are more interesting for the domestic scenario of their countries. In this sense, Brazil has specific challenges in the application of natural gas in this process, ranging from marketing issues to infrastructure and logistics regulation.

O Brasil e a emissão dos gases do efeito estufa

Brazil and the emission of greenhouse gases

Unfortunately, Brazil has not had a good position in reducing the emission of greenhouse gases. While other countries had a reduction of almost 7% with the effects of the pandemic, our country increased this rate by 9.5%. Of the five sectors of the economy that account for the totality of emissions in the country: three increased (agriculture, waste and land use change), one remained stable (industrial processes) and one declined (energy).

A estagnação da eficiência energética no Brasil

The stagnation of energy efficiency in Brazil

In the current scenario in the country, understanding what energy efficiency is is important to identify opportunities for optimization from generation to consumption. In times of water and energy crisis, these actions help to reduce costs, maintain supply and reduce waste, which also contributes to the environment. Thus, energy efficiency aims to optimize the use of energy sources to reduce costs and collaborate with the environment. That is, carry out the same processes using fewer resources.
