United States - Brazil | Energy Collaboration

by Diane Moss, Renewables 100 Policy Institute Founding Director amd Angelina Galiteva, Renewables 100 Policy Institute Founding Board Chair

A United States-Brazil partnership between the United States Consulate General in Recife, the Pernambuco Secretary of Environment and Sustainability, and the non-profit Renewables 100 Policy Institute has been forged to advance knowledge exchange on clean energy best practices, as well as to lay the groundwork to demonstrate lessons learned on the island of Fernando de Noronha, a World Heritage Site off the coast of Pernambuco, Brazil. Specifically, the partnership has aimed to create an initial action plan for showcasing innovative clean technology solutions and transforming the island into a model for transitioning to a carbon neutral, 100% renewable energy system across sectors, including electricity generation, transportation fuels, water desalination and treatment, and waste management.
