CEM success story

Almost 45% of primary energy demand is met by renewable energy, making Brazil's energy sector one of the least carbon-intensive in the world.

Clean energy goals and ambitions

  • Committed to achieving its nationally determined contribution on renewable energies in the context of the Paris Agreement under the UNFCCC. This includes achieving an energy mix of which 45% comes from renewable energy by 2030, including through:
    • Increasing the use of renewable energy sources other than hydropower in the total energy mix to between 28% and 33% by 2030;
    • Expanding the use of non-fossil fuel energy sources domestically and increasing the share of renewables (other than hydropower) in the power supply to at least 23% by 2030, including by increasing the share of wind, biomass, and solar; and
    • Achieving 10% efficiency gains in the electricity sector by 2030.
  • Intends to continue to adopt measures to increase the share of sustainable biofuels in its energy mix to approximately 18% by 2030 by expanding biofuel consumption, increasing ethanol supply - including by increasing the share of advanced biofuels (second generation) - and increasing the share of biodiesel in the diesel mix.
