Objective

The objective of this event is to present the results and lessons learned of the Energy Big Push Brazil project, which aims to provide data and information to decision makers to accelerate and improve investments in clean energy innovation in the country, in the context of ECLAC’s Big Push for Sustainability approach.

Presentation 

Over 10 Brazilian, regional and international institutions are working together to answer key questions to support more and better public and private investments in research, development and demonstration (RD&D) for sustainable energy solutions (SES) in Brazil. How much and what energy technologies is the country investing in? What are the performance indicators that can support decision making on SES RD&D investments? What are the incentive instruments and mechanisms that the Country has to support more innovation investments and how could they be improved? What is the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) context?
