The main objective of this document is to monitor the progress of energy efficiency in Brazil, through the use of indicators. In 2020 the first "Atlas of Energy Efficiency in Brazil - Indicators Report" was published - with analysis up to the year 2018. This work updates and complements, in a more condensed way, the first report with data up to the year 2021, consolidating the sixth cycle of EPE's work in the development of the database of energy efficiency indicators.
This year's Atlas of Energy Efficiency includes a special focus on the steel industry in Brazil, another relevant outcome of the cooperation between EPE, the International Energy Agency – IEA and the Instituto Aço Brasil. The special chapter presents a national and international analysis of the steel industry sub-sector, with a special focus on advances in energy efficiency and carbon emissions mitigation.
The publication is available in Portuguese and English in report and spreadsheet formats, as follows:
