Brazilian energy sector and regulation of the carbon credit market

The merger between Prospera + Greener takes place at a promising time for the carbon credit and renewable energy markets. Recently, the Federal Senate's Environment Committee approved a bill that promises to impact the Brazilian business scenario. This involves regulating the carbon credit market, an initiative with the aim of encouraging the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the country. With this approval, corporations that fail to meet their emissions reduction targets will have the opportunity to purchase carbon credits from other companies that have exceeded their targets, marking an important step towards sustainability in the business sector.

This advance also occurs at a time of transformation in Brazil's energy market: the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) predicts an 83% increase in energy generation capacity In the next years. In this scenario, Brazil stands out for its energy matrix mostly made up of renewable sources, with hydroelectric power leading with 60.2% of the installed electricity generation capacity. Furthermore, solar energy gains relevance, accounting for 14.7% of the national electrical matrix. This growth is driven by increasingly significant investments in renewable energy sources, demonstrating the country's commitment to a more sustainable and ecologically conscious energy matrix.
