Petrobras signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with TotalEnergies and Casa dos Ventos this Thursday (14/09), so that they can analyze a number of renewable energy projects in Brazil.
The objective is to produce joint studies on the business opportunities from onshore wind farming, offshore wind farming, solar power and low-carbon hydrogen within this country, utilizing the respective expertise of each.
The agreement was signed at Petrobras’s headquarters in Rio de Janeiro with the company’s president, Jean Paul Prates, the CEO of TotalEnergies, Patrick Pouyanné, and the president of Casa dos Ventos, Mario Araripe, in attendance.
“Petrobras has taken another important step forward in achieving a fair and inclusive energy transition with this new agreement with TotalEnergies and Casa dos Ventos, who are both heavyweights in renewable energy. Our aim is to work with the major players to invest in low-carbon projects so that we can build on the research into the technology and the new business activities, within this country. If they are viable and are fully implemented, these initiatives will make a decisive contribution to increasing the renewable energy supply in Brazil,” said the president of Petrobras, Jean Paul Prates.
