This Thursday, March 21 at the Ministry of Mines and Energy of Brazil (MME), the Minister of this State entity, Bento Albuquerque and the Executive Secretary of Olade, Alfonso Blanco, together with the representative of the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) ) for the country, Jaime Holguín, made the official launch of the Energy Information System for Brazil (SIE Brazil); System that had the technical support of Olade.
The SIE Brazil is a computer platform, in the process of being implemented by the Secretariat of Energy Planning and Development (SPE), which will structure and systematize Brazil’s energy statistics, covering statistics at the national, state and municipal levels, as well as allowing the comparison of indicators (Brazil, States, Municipalities, countries and world). The implementation of the System is developed through 12 phases. https://bit.ly/2XdtjBS
This system, implemented thanks to the financial support of the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF), will have a dynamic computer tool that will store, process and systematize the country’s energy information, which will guarantee the supply, quality and deployment of Energy data with easy access and publication.
The System will allow the Ministry of Mines and Energy of Brazil (MME) to manage and disseminate information on the supply and demand of energy; energy facilities, resources and reserves, energy prices, consumer equipment, efficiency, demographics, savings, particle emissions and perspectives, as well as legal and documentary information.
The support to the management of the MME, the studies of energy expansion and the decisions of the investors, can be cited as the main objectives of the System. No less important is the availability to the general public of historical series of statistics and indicators that allow analysis and studies in various areas of knowledge.
This project is a successful experience which can be replicated in other countries in the region.
