Research and Development

ANEEL's Research and Development Program (R&D), instituted by Law 9,991 of 07/24/2000, is mandatory for companies in the Electric Energy Sector, and requires that power generation utilities annually apply 1% of its declared Net Operating Revenue (ROL), in projects, research and technological development.

R&D projects should seek to improve the Brazilian electricity sector and generate greater confidence for investors, as well as strengthen the culture of innovation and long-term cooperation and integration.
