Energy foresight, scenarios and sustainable energy policy in brazil

Published on

Abstract:
Brazil is a leader in renewable energy, but considering policies is critical to maintaining this leadership in light of its strong dependence on hydropower for electricity, rising energy demand from economic growth, and need to support the aspirations of a growing middle class. The Center for Strategic Studies and Management in Science, Technology and Innovation (CGEE) is participating in ongoing prospective studies of technologies to increase energy efficiency and maintain high levels of renewable energy, as well as of carbon reduction scenarios to mitigate global climate change. This paper will apply scenario analysis techniques to evaluate the effect of policy and technology development and implementation on total primary energy consumption, economic efficiency of energy use, and decarbonisation of the fuel mix. Scenarios of total energy consumption versus GDP growth per unit of energy and level of decarbonisation from the International Energy Agency and from current Brazilian studies will be compared and developed into meta-scenarios with policy ramifications. Finally, we will discuss the use of FTA to inform and support policy decisions using these meta-scenarios.
