MME launches English version of the Ten-Year Energy Expansion Plan (PDE) 2031

The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) and the Energy Research Company (EPE) publish, this Monday (09/05), the first English version of the Ten-Year Energy Expansion Plan (PDE) 2031.

The PDE subsidizes energy policy decisions and provides the market with information that allows the analysis of the development of the energy sector and supply conditions under different future scenarios.

According to the PDE 2031 Reference Scenario, it is estimated that: (i) the share of renewable energies in the Brazilian energy matrix should increase, reaching a level of 48% in 2031; and (ii) the installed capacity of Brazilian electricity generation is expected to reach a level of renewability of 83% in 2031.

The English-language version of PDE 2031 will facilitate the international community's access to Brazil's energy prospects, thus giving greater visibility to opportunities in the Brazilian energy sector to foreign investors.

Prepared under the coordination of the Secretary of Energy Planning and Development (SPE) of the MME, the document indicates the perspectives of expansion of the energy sector in the horizon of ten years, within an integrated vision for the different energy segments
