Brazil, China Promote Partnerships in Renewable Energy Projects

The cooperation agreement between Brazil and China, through the China-Brazil Center for Climate Change and Innovative Energy Technologies, could yield benefits for Brazil, especially in the area of renewable energy, according to Segen Estefen.

Estefen, Technology and Innovation Director, Coordination Board of Postgraduate Programs in Engineering of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Coppe-UFRJ) made his observation at a seminar held by the China-Brazil Center at University City in Rio de Janeiro on 27 July.

The China-Brazil Center is the result of a partnership between Coppe and Tsinghua University, China's foremost engineering university, and is intended to formulate strategies and action plans to help the two governments make decisions in the areas of energy and the environment, Agencia Brasil reported.

Estefen said Brazil and China share common characteristics in terms of the debates on pollutant gas emissions, which opens the opportunity for converging actions by the two countries, "which is positive for Brazil," underscoring that in the field of renewable technologies, there are great opportunities for transferring Chinese technology to Brazil, mainly aero-generator towers, wind power, and photovoltaic solar panels.

Estefen told seminar participants, "In this context, Coppe seeks a partnership where we could contribute to the advancement of these technologies while, at the same time, reworking them to accommodate Brazil's reality so they may be more efficient for conditions in Brazil."
