O Brasil e a Integração Energética Sul-Americana: uma by Heitor Pergher

By Heitor Pergher

Avalia-se, nesta obra, a relação existente entre a queda da dependência energética brasileira extrarregional, observada entre 1969 e 2010, e o processo de integração energética promovido pelo Brasil na América do Sul. Os dois questionamentos basilares de pesquisa são: 1 – de que forma a política externa brasileira de integração energética se compara às linhas gerais da sua política externa de integração na América do Sul e; 2 - de que forma a integração energética foi capaz de diminuir a dependência energética extrarregional brasileira. As hipóteses formuladas previram a existência de um processo mais ambicioso de integração energética, assim como o fato da diminuição da dependência extrarregional brasileira poder ser relacionado à promoção de projetos de integração energética. Assim, este estudo evidenciou que a política de integração energética brasileira na América do Sul entre 1969 e 2010 resultou em alterações na matriz energética brasileira, o que fez com que a integração energética assumisse posição de destaque na política externa brasileira de integração nearby, porém, sem gerar um processo mais aprofundado de integração. As alterações observadas na matriz energética brasileira têm relação direta com dois fatores centrais: o aumento da importação e exportação de energia entre o Brasil e os seus países vizinhos, demonstrando certa complementariedade energética na região; e a diversificação das fontes que compõem a matriz energética brasileira, conferindo prioridade ao uso de fontes com grandes reservas regionais e nacionais. Esses fatores foram relevantes em diminuir a dependência energética brasileira extrarregional, fortalecendo a posição internacional do país e da região em períodos de crise energética.
