​Commitment to a sustainable future

 In its commitment to the environment and the generation of clean and sustainable energy in Brazil, Neoenergia has a wide presence in the hydroelectric segment.

We currently have 7 plants in operation: Itapebi, Corumbá, Baguari, Dardanelos, Teles Pires, Baixo Iguaçu and Belo Monte. Together, they have an installed capacity of approximately 3,030.6 MW and assured energy of 1,418.24 MW.

In recent years, in order to further increase our sustainable performance, investment in the construction of the Baixo Iguaçu plant, which has a total installed capacity of 350.2 MW, ensuring a production of 172.4 MW of energy (Physical Guarantee of the Plant ).

The performance of hydroelectric generators works in such a way that the funds raised in the rivers for the movement of the machines are all returned to the system, without changing the quality or volume.

The entire work process at the plants is carried out in order to control any possible impact on the environment. Still in the construction phases, field campaigns take place with the elaboration of monitoring reports, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the applied environmental controls and the evolution of the activities.

When in operation, Neoenergia is also committed to initiatives such as monitoring fauna, flora and erosion processes; the recovery and restoration of Permanent Preservation Areas (APP) and springs, and environmental education initiatives. Studies are also carried out to monitor biodiversity in reforested areas and careful monitoring is maintained to prevent irregular occupation, deforestation and predatory hunting and fishing.

The plants operated and maintained by Neoenergia Operation and Maintenance (NOEM) have an Integrated Management System, implemented with the scope "Operation and Maintenance of Hydroelectric Plants", to meet the ISO-9001: 2015 Quality Management, ISO-14001 standards: 2015 Environmental Management and ISO-45001: 2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management.
