In the name of the climate – Executive sumary

Analyzing the main projects and policies involving energy transition in Brazil and their implications, was the central objective of this thematic axis of the research “In the name of climate: critical mapping of energy transition and financialization of nature”. To this end, we discuss the geopolitics of energy and green hydrogen, with an emphasis on European policy in general and more specifically Germany’s strategy towards Brazilian projects and policies; onshore and offshore wind power in the Brazilian states of Ceará and Rio Grande do Sul; and the relationship between energy transition and mining. The
study was based on research using official, bibliographic and documentary information to quantitatively and qualitatively map out data on projects underway in the country, corporation and social actors involved, territories affected, and the main governmental policies and measures. The research also mapped federal and state government legislation and regulations on the subject.
