The Federal Government launched, in March 2022, <a href="https://www.gov.br/mma/pt-br/assuntos/climaozoniodesertificacao/MinutaProgramaMetanoZero.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noopener">the zero methane program</a>. The objective of the project is to stimulate the transformation of gas, which is harmful to the greenhouse effect, into biofuel with financing from public banks.
At a time of energy transition, the power of biomass stands out and gains strength as an alternative and viable energy source to expand on Brazilian soil. With the water crisis and consequently the energy crisis that the country has been experiencing since 2021, clean and renewable sources gain relevance in the development scenario.
Is it possible to develop biogas in agriculture? In recent years, the agricultural sector has been one of the main drivers of economic growth in Brazil. Following this development, the energy sector has seen in this market a way of generating energy and achieving sustainability goals, such as those agreed at COP26.
Do you know how shared distributed generation (GDC) works? GD in Brazil was regulated by the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) in 2012 through Resolution 482. Its objective was to enable Brazilians to produce their own energy from renewable sources — such as wind, solar and biomass sources — and to supply the surplus for the distribution network.
Do you know what are the main sources of distributed generation used in Brazil? Distributed generation is a model in which consumers can generate their own energy. In addition to bringing savings and freedom to consumers, GD, as a system that decentralizes energy production, is also important for the electrical system that becomes more stable and less dependent on hydroelectric plants.
The updating of the sanitation legal framework created a new environment for the development of the RSU and renewables market in the country. The new basic sanitation framework aims to improve access and universalization of water and sewage services. But, in addition, the changes also attract new investments and benefit the urban solid waste energy recovery market (USW).
