AES in the World
Together with over 10.000 employees around the world, we are part of a global company: AES Corporation, based in Arlington, Virginia.
Present in 15 countries and listed on the NY stock exchange, we own and operate several electric power distribution and generation companies using different sources – wind, solar, hydroelectric, biomass and thermal plants – and we invest in large-scale energy storage systems.
Currently, AES Corp. has a total installed capacity of 27 GW and seven distributors that provide power to more than 10 million customers. We are global leaders in energy storage with 476 MW³ and more than 104 MW of solar FV² projects in operation – Distributed Energy.
As part of the strategy to grow in renewable sources, we have created AES Distributed Energy, which has more than 100 MW of distributed solar generation projects. In 2017, we partnered with Alberta Investment Management Corp (AIMCo) to acquire Spower, a company with 1.3GW of solar and wind projects in operation and a portfolio of 10 GW of projects under development. Also in 2017, a joint venture between AES and Siemens, Fluence, was created to meet the energy storage needs of C&I customers.
