The British Embassy is seeking a consultant to undertake research and analysis of Brazil’s energy market.

It is developing a programme to assist with the nation’s low carbon energy transition and will use the information to support the Prosperity Fund Energy Programme.

The study must collate the current energy regulatory framework in areas including oil and gas, energy efficiency, smart grids, battery storage and renewable energy.

The final report should identify potential areas for reform and the potential impact this can bring to the sector.

Brazil’s economic growth is reliant on meeting its growing energy demand – by 2030, total demand is expected to increase 60% requiring an estimated investment of £365 billion by 2030.

However, the British Embassy believes regulatory and technological barriers and a challenging business environment will prevent the nation from achieving its energy goals.

It is commissioning the study within the price range of £21,000 and £24,900.

Proposals are to be submitted by 19th December 2017.
