Exploring a Sustainable Energy Transition Between RCP and KAPSOM

On June 4, 2024, representatives from the Brazilian RCP Association visited KAPSOM for discussions and exchanges regarding the Brazilian energy market and its transition toward sustainability.

Brazil has Great Potential for Renewable Energy

Brazil has great potential for renewable energy utilization. The humid tropical climate ensures abundant water resources, easy-to-produce plant biomass and sufficient sunlight throughout the year. According to data from the Brazilian Institute of Energy, in 2023, renewable energy will account for 49% of Brazil’s energy consumption. In the field of power generation, hydropower, solar energy, wind energy, biofuels, biomass energy, geothermal energy, etc. are the main sources, accounting for about 87% of the total. Brazil attaches great importance to the research and development and production of biofuels. It is the world’s second largest biofuel producer, with an output accounting for more than 21% of the world, second only to the United States. The Brazilian government’s “Ten-Year Energy Expansion Plan to 2032” predicts that from 2022 to 2032, Brazil’s biofuel supply will increase by an average of 4.1% per year, and demand will increase by an average of 6.6% per year.

Brazil Actively Promotes Green Energy Transition

Brazil is actively coordinating various interests and unifying deployment to promote the green energy transition. The federal government is coordinating support from states, municipalities, social organizations, and the private sector for the Accelerated Growth Program (PAC), which aims to invest 417.5 billion Brazilian reais (approximately 82 billion US dollars) in energy transition actions from 2023 to 2026. Additionally, an investment of 20.9 billion reais (approximately 4.1 billion US dollars) is expected during this period for the development of low-carbon fuels. Furthermore, the federal government has submitted a series of measures to Congress in the energy sector, including adjusting the maximum ethanol proportion in gasoline from 27% to 30% and introducing regulations for carbon capture and storage. Meanwhile, the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES) has initiated the Inova Energia program to promote technological development across the solar and wind energy supply chains and other renewable energy sectors.

Brazil actively engages in international cooperation to jointly promote the transition to green energy. Brazil, along with India and the United States, has established the Global Biofuels Alliance to expand bioenergy consumption by integrating global markets. During the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28), Brazil joined the Global Offshore Wind Alliance initiated by Denmark, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), and the Global Wind Energy Council to exchange best practices and policies and expand offshore wind power capacity. In 2025, Brazil will host the COP30 conference in Belém, encouraging other countries to adjust their energy patterns and contribute to global decarbonization and addressing ongoing climate change. Following its presidency of the G20, Brazil signed the Energy Acceleration Action Plan with the International Energy Agency (IEA), with the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) responsible for coordinating the Energy Transition Working Group to expand energy transition financing, promote fair and inclusive transitions, and prioritize the development of renewable energy fuel markets.

Exploring New Opportunities for Brazil’s Green Transformation

Carbon neutrality is the ultimate goal for humanity, but for the energy industry, energy transition is not a ‘multiple-choice question’ with a single pathway. Brazil possesses favorable conditions to become a center for green energy development, with its abundant and stable renewable energy resources offering tremendous potential for low-carbon energy production.

For years, KAPSOM has been committed to providing customers with the most professional holistic solutions for green energy, focusing on design optimization and production in the fields of green ammonia, green methanol, and ammonia cracking, continuously refining the Power-to-X product line to offer comprehensive green energy solutions to users.

During the visit to KAPSOM, both sides, starting from the practical aspects of Brazil’s green energy transition, explored cooperation models and prospects in fields such as green hydrogen, green ammonia, and green methanol. We also believe that with the favorable business environment provided by the local government, more and more companies will participate in the development of Brazil’s renewable energy market.
