Today, December 1st, Brazil began its term as president of the G20, the influential group that brings together the nineteen main global economies, in addition to the European Union and the African Union. This period of leadership, which will last until November 30, 2024, marks the first time that the country has held such a position. During this year, Brazil's priority focus is to promote the transition to sustainable energy, drive changes in global governance and redouble efforts to combat inequality and hunger.
Hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, promises to revolutionize the energy sector with its "colored" variants, such as gray, blue and green. Brazil innovates with "green and yellow" hydrogen, derived from ethanol. While there are challenges such as transportation, the opportunities are vast, from job creation to global strategic positioning. Hydrogen symbolizes hope for a cleaner, more sustainable future.
The transition to renewable energy sources is critical to combating climate change. In Brazil, biomethane is emerging as a green alternative to fossil fuels. Learn about the biogas industry, the growth potential and the benefits of biomethane as a vehicle fuel.
Brazil can achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through investments in renewable energy, transport electrification, and green hydrogen, as well as public policies and regulatory frameworks that encourage the energy transition.
