The Energy Task Force and the Oil & Gas Working Group are committed to working together to strengthen the Brazil-U.S. energy partnership and boost energy security, economic growth, innovation, and job creation in both countries.

- Advocate for bilateral collaboration on energy efficiency.
- Promote international cooperation to respond to offshore emergencies, decommissioning of platforms, and environmental licensing.
- Provide private sector recommendations into the U.S.-Brazil Energy Forum.
- Support Brazil’s Angra 1 nuclear plant life extension program and resumption of the Angra 3 project.
