Brazil

Climate targets: Energy

    • 18% sustainable biofuels in the energy mix by 2030
      Energy | Target year: 2030
    • 10% efficiency gains in the power supply
      Energy
    • 45% renewables in the energy mix by 2030; 23% renewables in the power supply by 2030
      Energy | Target year: 2030
    • Ethanol - encourages industry to achieve an average annual consumption increase of 11% by 2017. Produced from crops raised in areas de ned in the Sugarcane Zoning Program, currently being implemented, it should prevent the emission of 508 million tCO2 during the period.
      Energy | Trajectory target | Target year: 2017 | Base year: 2007
    • Implementation of the National Policy for Energy Efficiency that will result in a gradual energy saving up to 106 TWh/year to be reached in 2030, avoiding emissions of around 30 million tons of CO2 in that year by 2030 against a 2007 baseline
      Energy | Base year target | Target year: 2030 | Base year: 2007
    • Maximum levels of energy consumption and energy efficiency for products built or sold in Brazil by N/A
      Energy | Base year target | Target year: 0 | Base year: N/A
    • Biodiesel - ongoing studies to anticipate from 2013 to 2010 the obligation to add 5% to diesel by 2010 against a 2007 baseline
      Energy | Fixed level target | Target year: 2010 | Base year: 2007
    • Generation of electricity from biomass: 4,75 GW for biomass from sugar cane and 1,3 GW from urban waste and other biomasses.
      Energy | Fixed level target | Target year: 2030 | Base year: 2015
    • Increase the installed capacity of hydroelectricity to 168 GW by 2030.
      Energy | Fixed level target | Target year: 2030 | Base year: 2015
    • Reduction of non-technical losses in the electricity distribution at a rate of 1,000 GWh per year over the next ten years, which currently are around 22,000 GWh per year. This will represent a reduction in energy wastage of 400 GWh per year. On average, around 25% (100 GWh per year) of this energy will no longer be produced by thermo power plants. by 2017 against a 2007 baseline
      Energy | Base year target | Target year: 2017 | Base year: 2007
    • Increase electricity supply from cogeneration, mainly from sugarcane bagasse, to 11.4% of the total supply in the country, in 2030, corresponding to 136 TWh by 2030 against a 2007 baseline
      Energy | Trajectory target | Target year: 2030 | Base year: 2007
    • Energy from wind and sugarcane bagasse - Increasing the share of these sources in the electric matrix through specific auctions of renewable energy. More than 7,000 MW of renewable sources will be implemented by 2010 in accordance with the results of the Program of Incentives for Alternative Sources of Electric Energy - PROINFA and the auctions already carried out.
      Energy | Fixed level target | Target year: 2010 | Base year: 2007
    • Encouragement of the use of water solar power heating systems, reducing electricity consumption in 2,200 GWh per year by 2015 against a 2007 baseline
      Energy | Trajectory target | Target year: 2015 | Base year: 2007
    • 34,460 MW from new hydropower plants to be added to the system in accordance with the schedule of works of the Ten Year Energy Plan (2007-2016)
      Energy | Fixed level target | Target year: 2016 | Base year: 2007
