The first 2019 event held by CEBRI’s Energy Working Group, in partnership with Catavento and with the Dutch Consulate’s support, discussed the opportunities and challenges brought to urban centers by the energy transition, including the role of technology and the Brazilian scenario.

The event took place in February 21st, with an opening speech by Jorge Camargo, CEBRI Trustee, followed by a context presentation by Clarissa Lins, Catavento’s founding partner and CEBRI’s senior fellow. The discussion panel was joined by Paul Matthieu – project director for Energy Transition at Nijmegen (Netherlands) -, Hans van Ammers – senior adviser on Climate Mitigation and Adaptation at Arnhem (Netherlands), Marcelo Porto – vice president at IBM Cloud Latin America – and Luis Antonio Lindau – Brazil director at WRI Sustainable Cities. The rich discussions held at the panel provided a diverse and complementary set of visions on the cities’ challenges and opportunities.

In order to consolidate the issues raised during the event, as well as take a deep dive on global trends and the Brazilian reality, the Catavento team published a paper that can be downloaded below.
