Description: In 2008 Brazil's President signed the National Climate Change Plan (PNMC), which contains provisions regarding energy efficiency. It seeks to increase energy efficiency across various sectors of the economy, in line with best practices.
A national energy efficiency action plan was adopted in 2011 within the framework of the PNMC. The plan involves a reduction in electricity consumption of around 10% by 2030 compared with a reference scenario (equivalent to savings of 106 TWh), which would avoid 30 Mt of CO2 emissions. Since 1998, the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (ANEEL) has required all utilities to invest a minimum of 1% of their annual revenues in energy efficiency programmes.
