Inova-e presents data update on energy innovation investments in Brazil

EPE has been seeking to improve the monitoring of innovation in the energy sector in Brazil. In 2018 and 2019, a broad mapping of Brazilian investments in Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D) was carried out, based on Energy Big Push initiative, a partnership between EPE, ECLAC and CGEE, which had the support of the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE).

The need to report public and publicly oriented investments in research and development in the energy area highlighted the importance for Brazil of structuring a platform capable of organizing, structuring, classifying and making available these investment values, in line with the best international practices. A partnership between EPE and the UK's Brazil Energy Progammme made it possible to build the inova-e platform for this mission.

In 2021, inova-e was launched with data for the period from 2013 to 2018. In 2022, the first cycle of updating the platform data was carried out to include data for the years 2019 and 2020 to the base. The annual update process is a fundamental part to make the availability of innovation data from the energy sector in Brazil a perennial process in the Brazilian State. In addition, it possible to better understand the dynamics of investments for different technological categories.

EPE also shares the factsheet "Update of the overview of Innovation Investments in Energy in Brazil" in which we explore some of the dynamics derived from the new data available.
