    Brazil's energy ministry, Piaui gov discuss clean H2 legal framework

    September 28, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 28 (Renewables Now) - Brazil’s Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) said on Wednesday that it is in talks with the government of the northeastern state of Piaui for the construction of a legal framework for low-carbon hydrogen in the country.

      The MME announced that National Secretary of Energy Transition and Planning, Thiago Barral, has discussed the matter with Piaui’s governor Rafael Fonteles. The officials have covered alternatives to boost green hydrogen demand as a way to anchor future projects, including its derivatives such as ammonia and methanol. No specifics were given.

      The MME noted that the meeting was aimed at supporting the proposal of a low-carbon hydrogen market bill, part of the National Hydrogen Programme (PNH2).

      Under PNH2, Brazil is aiming to become a highly competitive country in the global context, with plans to raise investment in the research and development of low-carbon hydrogen to around BRL 200 million (USD 39.9m/EUR 37.9m) per year in 2025.

      (BRL 1.0 = USD 0.200/EUR 0.190)
