Due to its huge hydroelectric power capacities, Brazil is already as of now one of the largest producers of renewable electricity worldwide. Similarly, given its favourable natural conditions, the country is a major producer of biomass and biofuels. These types of RE will not be in the focus of the study, as they depend on natural conditions that are (abundantly) present in the case of Brazil, but not in the large majority of partner countries in which GIZ works and which form the reference group of the SE4JOBS (Sustainable Energy for Jobs ) project. In the framework of this study, the focus will therefore lie on RE markets and employment from wind power and solar energy as well as energy efficiency.
