Brazil’s Future as an Energy Superpower
May 31, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Join UC San Diego’s Center on Global Transformation for a lively discussion on Brazil’s energy future followed by a wine and networking reception with global music performance by Sonic Impact.
Even though Brazil has the potential to be one of the world’s largest energy suppliers, political uncertainties have long scared investors and hobbled the nation. In this conversation, Mauricio Tolmasquim, professor at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and GPS Professor David Victor will lay out where Brazil stands today, what the country’s energy future may look like, and what role Brazil will play globally in tackling energy challenges such as limiting emissions that cause global warming.
