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
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 148,000 GWh, representing over 30% of energy consumption in Brazil’s National Integrated System (SIN).
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.
GWH PRODUCED IN 2020
In 2020, the production of sugarcane bioelectricity was 22.6 thousand GWh, representing 82% of all electricity generation from biomass in the country
