The government of Goiás is working to make possible the implementation of 182 SHPs, in projects in the state approved or in progress at Aneel. Together, these projects add up to 3,659 MW of power and about R$18 billion ($2.14 bn) in investments.
Aneel’s general management authorised the company Ciranda Energias Renováveis to implement and operate the Xaxado 1, 2 and 3 photovoltaic plants under the Electricity Self-Production regime, adding 96 MW of capacity in the municipality of São José do Belmonte (PE).
Brazilian sugarcane ethanol is recognised as a biofuel to promote renewable energy. This means that Brazilian ethanol is one of the most greenhouse gas (GHG) reducing fuels compared to fossil fuels. This classification is given through the Renewable Energy Directive (RED), an environmental directive on renewable energy and which forms part of European Union legislation.
Cellulose production in Brazil totalled 5.19 million tons from April to June, up 5% over the same period in 2019, according to preliminary data released by the Brazilian Tree Industry (Ibá). Raw material exports rose 4.5% in the same comparison, to 4.1 million tonnes, while apparent consumption rose 5.7%, to 1.125 million tonnes.
The new Gas Law could generate 4 million jobs in 5 years, halving the price of fuel and adding 0.5% growth in Brazilian GDP per year over the next 10 years. In this scenario, the country can triple the national industrial production from gas, resuming the manufacture of products imported today and gaining competitiveness in exports.
