Parliamentary front debates renewable energy in Congress

Parliamentarians from the House of Representatives met to create the Parliamentary Front for Renewable Energy (RES), aimed at debating and defending initiatives for renewable energy in the National Congress. The Front will address issues related to wind, solar, hydroelectric and other energy to replace fossil fuels.

The initiative will aim to expand the relevance of renewable sources and propose measures to boost them in the national market, through legislative proposals. So far, 212 federal deputies participate in the Front, which will be chaired by Deputy Danilo Forte (PSDB-CE). According to Forte ao Estadão, "the Front is of interest to everyone, so it is born with parliamentarians from left and right, people from the PCdoB to the PSL".

An event to make the launch of THE FER official will take place on Wednesday (17), in Brasilia. The meeting will be face-to-face and broadcast online. Ministers Bento Albuquerque (Mines and Energy), Tereza Cristina (Agriculture) and Ricardo Salles (Environment) are also expected to be present.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that the government's interest in the subject is related to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change, also known as COP 26. The event is scheduled to take place in November this year in Glasgow, Scotland.
