Power Generation

The company’s power generationportfolio includes fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas, and renewable resources such as solar. This diversification is strategic for the Brazilian energy matrix, which is currently significantly dependent on intrinsically seasonal hydroelectric sources.

The company’s gross installed generation capacity stands at 2.2 GWs, which places us among the largest private power generation companies in Brazil.
