Bioelectricity generated from sugarcane biomass is the 4th largest source of electricity withinthe Brazilian matrix.

This renewable and sustainable energy generation takes place across the whole country.

High attractiveness for investment and employment generation

Prevents the emission of greenhouse gases

A consolidated national production chain

Complementarity with hydroelectric power – peak generation during the low rainfall season, increases the country’s energy security

Reduced energy transport losses and savings on transmission investments generated near consumer centers

bioelectricity would have the technical potential to reach
,000 GWH

We have only harnessed 15% of our potential: if there were to be a full use of the biomass present in sugarcane fields, bioelectricity would have the technical potential to reach 151,000 GWh, representing over 30% of energy consumption in Brazil’s National Integrated System (SIN).

55%

potential to grow until 2030

Stimulated by RenovaBio and a stable business environment, biomass electricity has the potential to grow by more than 55% by 2030.

20,200 

GWH PRODUCED IN 2021

In 2021, the production of sugarcane bioelectricity was 20.2 thousand GWh, representing 79,5% of all electricity generation from biomass in the country
