Energy

The climate debate is an accelerator of the transition and will result in net zero carbon emissions in the sector by 2035.

Through the projects it carries out, the Energy portfolio seeks to accelerate the transition and to promote the coordination between the representatives from civil society, the private sector and governments, on five work fronts:

Achieve 88% energy efficiency in the generation of energy by 2025, towards 100% by 2035

Elimination of fossil fuels from the generation of energy by 2035

Guarantee that the energy transition contributes to the reduction of social inequalities in Brazil

Ensure that cooling appliances follow the best practices of efficiency ​energy

Leverage the Brazilian market of energy efficiency

Impact Stories

Each of the projects supported by iCS impact people and communities, with a new development vision for the future of Brazil. Know the stories.

  • Matheus Villa, who lives at Morro da Babilônia (Leme, Rio de Janeiro), has seen his life change after a professional training in the installation of photovoltaic panels. Soon after the course, held in 2021, he installed 420 solar panels at a plant in Rio de Janeiro and he has also worked on projects in São Paulo. “I used to work with tourism but I am now focused on sustainable energy, because there is a large and growing demand and very little skilled labor. Furthermore, I am learning other skills with the NGO, as a building electrician, which I am just about to complete.”

  • Finally, the revision of the MEPS (minimum efficiency performance standards) for air conditioners has been approved. iCS and its partners have worked very hard to achieve this objective
