  • Brazil targets a 53% cut in GHG emissions in 2030 compared to 2005.
  • The country is developing its wind and solar capacity and adapting its legal framework to develop "low-carbon" hydrogen production.
  • Eletrobras, the federal holding company, owns 22% of the power capacity.
  • Petrobras is responsible for over 2/3 of the oil output.
  • Solar capacity soared by 80% in 2022 and is mainly led by micro and mini distributed PV.
  • Renewables account for 90% of power generation, 63% of which is hydro.
  • Crude oil exports have more than tripled since 2013.
  • Brazil is the second biofuel producer in the world.
  • Gasoline and diesel prices are below the average regional levels. Ethanol continues to be a cheap option.
  • Electricity prices are among the highest in Latin America.
  • Total energy consumption rose slightly in 2022, after a significant rebound in 2021.
  • Biofuels represent almost 30% of road transport consumption.
  • The country's consumption should double by 2050 and power consumption should triple.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) has the responsibility for the whole energy sector. The National Council for Energy Policy (CNPE), composed of government representatives, experts in energy, and non-governmental organisations, is the advisory body for the energy policy.

    EPE, the Energy Research Company under MME, is in charge of energy planning.

  • Energy Companies


    Petrobras (Federal Government 50.3% of common shares and 28.7% of capital stock) is the national oil and gas company and the largest Brazilian company.

  • Energy Supply


    The country's oil production has been growing at the rapid pace of 4.4%/year since 2013, reaching 157 Mt in 2022 (76% of which comes from the pre-salt). Over the first three quarters of 2023, production increased by 11%.

  • Energy Prices


    In 2023, the price of gasoline decreased to US$1.12/l (-16%) and that of diesel US$0.99/l (-12%), following international prices. In 2022, they increased dramatically due to global price rises and the decision of Petrobras to increase gasoline prices by 19% and diesel prices by 25% for distributors at the refinery gate in March 2022.

  • Energy Consumption

    With a per capita consumption of 1.4 toe (2022), Brazil is within the average range for semi-industrialised countries but well below the European average of 2.9 toe.

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the 10-Year Energy Expansion Plan 2031 (Plan Decenal de Expansão de Energia 2031, PDE 2031), final energy consumption should grow by an average of 2.5%/year between 2021 and 2031. Electricity consumption is expected to increase by 3.5%/year, oil products by 1.6%/year, gas by 4.9%/year, and coal by 2.5%/year.
