Research and Development

ANEEL's Research and Development Program (R&D), instituted by Law 9.991 dated 07/24/2000, is mandatory for companies in the Power Sector, and requires that power generation utilities annually invest 1% of their declared Net Operating Income (NOI), in projects, research and technological development.

R&D projects must 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.
