Brazil

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, Brazil has committed at least USD 4.69 billion to supporting different energy types through new or amended policies, according to official government sources and other publicly available information. These public money commitments include:

  • At least USD 608.52 million for unconditional fossil fuels through 13 policies (1 quantified and 12 unquantified)
  • Some public money committed for conditional fossil fuels (1 policy with the value of public money unquantified)
  • At least USD 765.82 million for unconditional clean energy through 8 policies (6 quantified and 2 unquantified)
  • At least USD 19.27 million for conditional clean energy through 1 policy (1 quantified)
  • At least USD 3.30 billion for other energy through 13 policies (7 quantified and 6 unquantified)

By energy type, Brazil committed at least USD 608.52 million to oil and gas (at least USD 608.52 million to unconditional oil and gas).

In addition, some public money committed for coal (1 policy with the value of public money unquantified).

Further, no public money commitments identified for hydrogen based on fossil fuels.

Finally, some public money committed for multiple fossil fuels (2 policies with the value of public money unquantified).

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of Brazil through monetary and fiscal policies in response to the crisis may also benefit different elements of the energy sector. However, these values are not available from official legislation and statements and therefore are not included in the database. Meanwhile, in addition to monetary and fiscal measures, the database lists other policies and regulations that can also provide benefits to producers and consumers of different energy types.

These public money commitments are additional to many other government policies that had existed to support different energy types before the COVID19 pandemic.

The resources will be used as grants to support energy efficiency projects through guarantees in different sectors of the economy. The objective is to reduce risks of default and increase access to credits for such projects. 23/07/2020 30 million BRL 30000000 "The National Electricity Conservation Program (Procel) will contribute R $ 30 million to the Energy Efficiency Guarantee Fund (FGEnergia) of the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES). These non-reimbursable funds will be used to support energy efficiency projects through the provision of guarantees. Energy efficiency projects from different sectors of the economy may be contemplated. "In practice, the guarantee offered reduces the risk of default assumed by financiers and, thus, increases the possibility of access to credit for the borrower. The Fund's guarantee mechanism provides for the coverage of part of the risk of financial agents with these operations, through the granting of a guarantee that may reach 80% of the total credit, and will be subject to the validation of technical criteria of the project related to energy efficiency. With an initial investment of R $ 30 million, FGEnergia will be able to generate guarantees for approximately R $ 200 million in energy efficiency projects throughout Brazil."

Activities of exploration and production of oil and natural gas that are not essential to guarantee national supply can only be carried out if a “risk analysis appropriate to the emergency scenario arising from COVID-19” is carried out. The companies must also report to the ANP "cases of suspected and confirmed coronavirus, per production unit", in addition to the impacts generated in drilling and production activities. “Small production” oil fields may, for the remainder of this year, burn up to 100,000 m³ of natural gas per day. But the agency has reserved the right to revoke that authorization "at its sole discretion".
