Transitions in energy history: development and new perspectives about the natural gas in Brazil


Brazil has gone through several transitions related to energetic issues that go from the creation of public and energetic policies, of process of territorial recognition and natural resources, the government and private initiatives, to the social, environmental and economic impact that these transitions generate. From this perspective, History of Energy allows us to incorporate energy not only as something natural, but to stimulate us to think about its processes, mechanisms, effects or even environmental changes occasioned by its uses. Therefore, the goal is to study Brazil through its innumerous energetic transitions, having as focus the natural gas, associated with projects from Energy Policies and Economic Programme from Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI-USP), or, in other words, apply the theory in practice. In other words, it will be possible to apply the theory in practice on the basis of natural gas. Thus, from an investigative way derived from the data analysis (historical and current), we turn our attention to the applicability and uses of natural gas in the energy system in the country, impacts on the environment and economy, considering the historical context, which allows the diagnosis of investments and the use and use of natural gas in Brazil. Exploring yet technical, economic, social and environmental conditions that make natural gas a viable solution, for example, for the more sustainable transport systems (focus on project 25 - RCGI). Putting thus, at issue, what we denominate of energy transition, like one of the main paradigms in discourse of public policies and governmental and private strategies related to the energy. Therefore, it is necessary to return to primary, secondary and current sources which can demonstrate the research and the use of energy more efficiently, allowing social, political and economic development to be thought along with new perspectives in the short and long term.
