Further information

Brazil has set ambitious climate goals and implemented policies to achieve them, such as to reduce 30% of methane emissions by 2030 (Glasgow Climate Pact) and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels, and to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 (Paris Agreement). The country has also implemented a range of policies to support this goal, such as increasing the share of renewables in the electricity grid, promoting sustainable agriculture and forest management, and investing in clean transportation.

In this context, Brazil sees green hydrogen as an excellent opportunity to tap into its vast renewable resources to become an important global player in what may be the next frontier of energy. Current trends are showing that most of green hydrogen in Brazil will be obtained through electrolysis using offshore wind power and onshore photovoltaic electricity to produce green hydrogen. Market projections estimate that the Brazilian green hydrogen market can reach US$ 30 billion by 2050, which is a great untapped opportunities for various SMEs that are part of this vast value chain.
