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.

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
Using the design thinking methodology, multidisciplinary groups of employees are encouraged to seek innovative solutions to strategic dilemmas or challenges. In the last two years, we have trained more than 1,000 employees.

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.
