Energy

The transition to a zero carbon economy by 2050 requires a zero carbon electric sector by 2035.

The Energy portfolio seeks to accelerate this transition, supporting projects by civil society and their coordination with the private sector and governments, on four work fronts:

Reaching an 88% share of renewables in electricity generation by 2025, and towards 98% by 2035.

Definition of the removal of coal in electricity generation by 2035.

Guaranteeing that the Distributed Generation and Energy Efficiency contribute to the reduction of social inequalities in Brazil.

Promoting Energy Efficiency as the first source in energy planning, with its participation in the energy market.
