    O objetivo deste estudo é analisar as implicações econômicas, políticas e estratégicas das transformações do cenário energético brasileiro, considerando seus possíveis impactos sobre a inserção internacional do país. Para tanto, traça-se o panorama energético global discutindo o papel dos principais players do setor na evolução recente dos preços do petróleo e da parcela representada por cada fonte de energia na oferta global. Em seguida, há seções sobre a importância geopolítica do desenvolvimento das indústrias de petróleo, de etanol e nuclear no Brasil, apontando as tendências e os debates de cada segmento. Da análise, conclui-se que o esforço brasileiro de evitar restrições energéticas ao processo de desenvolvimento, além de ter garantidas a diversificação da matriz e a autossuficiência, encetou progressos tecnológicos e institucionais muito relevantes para as indústrias do setor, de modo a criar as condições para que, hoje, o país desponte como um relevante exportador líquido de energia.
