Major economies outside Brazil

                  Major economies outside Brazil 





Brazil (25th) is the top performer among the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China). It benefits from a diversified energy mix with a considerable share of low-carbon energy, and a growing domestic oil and gas sector providing revenues and reducing the need for energy imports. With its electricity supply dominated by hydropower, Brazil achieves a comparatively high score for environmental sustainability. However, its energy architecture is also deteriorating; shares of alternative and nuclear energy dropped by 6% in seven years, and the country has experienced a 10% increase in CO2 emissions from electricity generation over the same period. Its score for the quality of electricity supply also decreased in 2014-2015 compared to 2008-2009.
