Value of Service: Promotion of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Brazil

The Brazilian government has initiated a series of programmes to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. During the next 14 months, IP Consult (as lead consultant) will - together with another partner company - support the German Technical Cooperation Programme "Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Brazil" with an expert pool. The emphasis of the programme is to raise awareness regarding 'Energy Efficiency (EE)’ and ‘Renewable Energy (RE)’ (large hydropower plants and bio fuel production is excluded) in the Brazilian society and especially within the energy consuming industry. The programme works in close cooperation with political institutions and supports their implementing partners, e.g. SENAI and SEBRAE. IP Consult‘s contribution will especially focus on the support of the existing national programmes for energy efficiency and renewable energy.
