What is the expectation for the Ten Year Energy Expansion Plan (PDE) 2031? Since January 2022, the MME has turned its attention to the PDE 2031, opening the public consultation to receive contributions from society. At the end of the term, in February, the participation of more than 50 institutions was registered.
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.
Despite counting on the presence of fossil fuel sources, the Brazilian energy matrix is considered one of the most renewable among the world economies. While Brazil uses more than 48% of renewable sources, the world average is 14%.
The energy transition is a subject that has become a trend in many countries. With the advance of global warming and its consequences, there is an urgent need for migration to a low carbon economy.
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).
The PL for solar energy proposes changes that bring more legal certainty, but there are still deadlocks regarding the compensation system. Understand the impacts.
Debentures are a means of raising financial resources. See what Infrastructure Debentures are and their impact on the electricity sector.
The consumption reduction program aims to reduce energy costs, especially during peak hours. See the points of the proposal. With the lack of historical rain and the reservoirs getting lower, the Federal Government created a program to reduce consumption.
To carry out good asset management, it is important to understand the regulations that operate in the sector. In the case of energy, there is a clear trend towards innovation and use of technology in search of a clean and renewable matrix.
