    Brazil: Resolution establishes National Hydrogen Program


    August 5, 2022 - Brazil Business News

     

      Brazil has great potential to stand out in this market, given the competitive advantage presented, with more than 80% of the electricity matrix coming from renewable sources. In addition, Brazil has a wide range of energy resources that can be used for the production of low-carbon hydrogen through different technological routes.

      Original Press Release:

      Aug. 4 -- Ministry of Mines and Energy of Brazil issued the following news release:

      - Brazil has the potential to stand out in this market, as it has more than 80% of its electricity matrix from renewable sources and a wide range of energy resources that can be used in the production of low-carbon hydrogen.

      This Thursday (08/04), Resolution No. 6, of June 23, 2022, of the National Energy Policy Council (CNPE) was published, establishing the National Hydrogen Program (PNH2) and establishing the structure of program governance.

      In recent years, the hydrogen market has become a priority in the climate and energy strategy of several countries, as it provides an alternative for sectors that are difficult to reduce carbon emissions. In addition, hydrogen is also an energy vector, which enables storage and favors the coupling of the energy sector with those of industry and transport.

      Brazil has great potential to stand out in this market, given the competitive advantage presented, with more than 80% of the electricity matrix coming from renewable sources. In addition, Brazil has a wide range of energy resources that can be used for the production of low-carbon hydrogen through different technological routes.

      The use of hydrogen as an energy vector still presents significant technological and market challenges, throughout its entire energy chain (production, transport, storage and consumption). This imposes the need for a structured look at market and industry development. In this way, the strategic orientation aims to develop a hydrogen economy in Brazil in harmony with the other sources of our energy matrix.

      According to the governance structure of PNH2, the coordination and supervision of the planning and implementation of activities will be the responsibility of a Management Committee, made up of various bodies and entities of the Federal Public Administration. The objective is to strengthen the hydrogen market and industry as an energy vector in Brazil.

      Before CNPE Resolution nº 6, of 2022 , other decisions of the collegiate of ministers already identified the strategic role that hydrogen can play in a future of decarbonized economies, such as CNPE Resolution nº 2, of 2021, which defined hydrogen as one of the themes priorities for investments in research and development, and CNPE Resolution nº 6 of 2021 , which guided the definition of guidelines for the Program.
