Abstract

The automotive sector accounts for 22 % of the National Industrial Product in Brazil. In terms of the internal market size in 2019, Brazil was the sixth largest market globally. Such important productive activity is now facing a challenge that is technological and has several implications that range from the national economy to the geopolitical front. Unlike other countries, the growing pressure to reduce carbon emissions has put pressure on the local automotive sector. To face this pressure is more than a matter of technology and has to be seen as a more complex problem given the already mentioned implications. This paper summarizes some of the main challenges in energy sources for the automotive sector in Brazil. Some of the challenges are similar to what other countries are facing, and others are specific but with possible lessons to be used by all countries.
