Innovation is the key to drive business

We continually seek innovative solutions that contribute to solve the energy challenges of our customers, generate value for the whole society and universalize the experience with energy use.

This means thinking about new business models and technological alternatives that contribute to increasing the efficiency and reliability of our customers’ energy and particularly to reducing environmental impacts.

Innovation Platform

Our goal is to drive business and leverage our customers’ development through a large network of partners such as startups, universities and research institutes to access our assets and create products and services for this new industry with a focus on five technological drivers:

Startup Acceleration Program

With AES Startup Acceleration Program, we seek to accelerate startups projects aiming to develop products, services or new business models within the themes defined in the platform.Developed with support from the accelerator Liga Ventures and Senai, we have selected eight startups from 233 who submitted their projects.From the selected ones, two will receive financial contributions of up to 500,000 Reais. This was the first initiative of the R&D Program regulated by the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (ANEEL – Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica), becoming a national reference.

Design Thinking Workshops

According to the R&D Program regulated by the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (ANEEL – Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica), all our investments must be carried out in projects related to innovation. Our goal is to make these investments generate value for both the company and those audiences that have relationships with us.
