About this grant
The Instituto de Energia e Meio Ambiente is a nonprofit Brazilian think tank focused on research, analysis and policy evaluation to contribute to socially and environmentally sustainable energy and transportation development and finance. Over the previous grant period, the grantee monitored thermoelectric power development and finance, and its impacts on climate and freshwater resources. Over this grant period, the grantee will continue its research and data gathering, build a community of practice and engage the Brazilian Development Bank to strengthen social and environmental safeguards for financing planned natural gas-powered thermoelectric expansion.
