TotalEnergies, Petrobras and Casa dos Ventos Holding signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to evaluate perspectives and joint opportunities in renewable energy and low-carbon hydrogen in Brazil.

The agreement will enable the three companies to jointly study opportunities of investment and offtake in onshore wind, offshore wind, solar and low-carbon hydrogen in the country, capitalizing on their combined synergies.

Each company will bring their distinct skills to the cooperation. Casa dos Ventos Holding, the JV formed by TotalEnergies and Casa dos Ventos is the leader of wind and solar energy in Brazil with a 12 GW portfolio to be developed in the coming years. Petrobras is the largest Brazilian Energy company with recognized technical expertise in the energy domain. As for TotalEnergies, it brings its global multi-energy know-how and industrial approach to the partnership.

“Brazil is a great country for developing renewable energies. We are therefore delighted to join forces with Casa dos Ventos and Petrobras to identify potential synergies between our activities, and thus develop profitable renewables opportunities,” said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies.         

TotalEnergies is investing in the growth of the renewable energy segment in Brazil. TotalEnergies' subsidiary Total Eren has 300 MW of solar and wind projects in operation. In October 2022, the company entered into a partnership with Casa dos Ventos, Brazil's leading renewable energy player, to jointly develop a 12 GW renewable energy portfolio. TotalEnergies is also active in the Brazilian fuel distribution market with a network of about 240 filling stations as well as several storage facilities for petroleum products and ethanol.
