Brazilian biodiesel producers are vowing to meet demand for a 12pc blend in November and December, after a temporary reduction to 10pc lapses at the end of October. Total diesel demand is expected to reach 9.4 B liters (969,249 b/d) in the final two months of the year, up 3.3% from the same period of 2019, according to data compiled by biodiesel association Aprobio. Aprobio projects that biodiesel demand will reach 1.13 B over the same period under a 12% blend, which biodiesel producers say they can meet. But Aprobio added that ceiling prices for a procurement auction for the last two months of the year should reflect current feedstock prices. The association previously grumbled that biodiesel prices in the routine auctions did not adequately reflect production costs.

The “strong wind” season in northeast Brazil has caused wind power production to set unprecedented production records in 2020. In the first week of August alone, the National Electric System Operator (ONS) recorded three peaks in the average power generation in the wind farm region. The most recent was on August 6, when wind turbines reached 9,049 MW on average. This capacity is enough to supply the equivalent of 94.4% of the electricity demand in the nine northeastern states, for example.

The concept of solving rural poverty with renewable energy seems odd on the surface. The issues plaguing renewable energy such as costs, efficiency and returns on investment make it virtually unsuitable for poor, rural environments. It is after all, in places like this where the opportunity for such bold initiatives hardly exists. However, in Brazil, where an abundance of renewable resources like hydropower and sugarcane (ethanol) generate electricity every day, the country is optimistic about solving one issue with the other.A typical issue facing impoverished communities, like those in Brazil, is that households have little to no access to electricity. These villages are undeveloped and off the national grid; their countryside location would make centralized electricity costly and yet these families make far less money than do typical, urban households.
