EPE publishes the "Atlas of Energy Efficiency in Brazil 2021 - Indicators Report"

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 2020, consolidating the fifth 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 road freight sector, another relevant outcome of the cooperation between EPE and the International Energy Agency - IEA.

This chapter presents the evolution of Brazilian road transport and its relevance for the country's energy mix. Brazil is then benchmarked with other countries along key indicators, with examples offered of leading technology and policy options to advance energy efficiency, carbono mitigation and air quality improvements of the sector.
