The Brazil Energy Programme provides UK funding and international expertise to support Brazil’s emergence as a renewable energy powerhouse

Brazil has enormous potential to be a global leader in renewable energies that deliver social impact.

The Brazil Energy Programme (BEP) provides UK funding and international expertise to support Brazil’s emergence as a renewable energy powerhouse.

BEP will accelerate Brazil’s transition to sustainable, clean energy that can give disadvantaged parts of society more control over the source and cost of the energy they use.

BEP will demonstrate innovative technologies through pilot projects implemented by Brazilian and international companies.

And BEP will help Brazil prepare for progress by adapting policy and regulations to promote the use of clean energy technologies.

Find OUt About Us

BEP and the Brazil GEF Biogas Project, coordinated by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MCTI) and implemented by UNIDO, are joining forces to accelerate the transformation of waste into energy in Brazil.

The partnership aims to increase the use of biogas and biomethane in Brazil’s energy mix. These biofuels are low-carbon energy sources that can help Brazil to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.

The partnership will facilitate the exchange of data and information, and strengthen exchange on policies and regulations that promote a low carbon energy transition by developing the biogas and biomethane market.
