Initiative promotes sustainable mobility for the population by making charging points for electric cars available in highways and shopping centers


Green Corridor is 1,100 kilometers long and crosses six states in the Northeast region 


The first electric road in the Northeast of the country is nearing completion.  The initiative, undertaken by Neoenergia, connects six capitals, from Salvador (BA) to Natal (RN), passing through Aracaju (SE), Maceió (AL), Recife (PE) and João Pessoa (PB). Called Green Corridor, the project is a realization of the Research and Development (R&D) program, regulated by the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel), and makes available charging points for electric cars, focusing on electric mobility and sustainable development.

The Green Corridor​ covers six of the nine Northeast states, passing through 70 municipalities and contributing so that thousands of people can adhere to electric mobility in a more sustainable way. In total, there will be 18 electric stations along 1,100 kilometers of extension. Among them, six are in shopping centers and have already been released for use by the public in an experimental phase. There are two in each undertaking located in the Shopping da Bahia (Salvador-BA), RioMar Shopping (Recife-PE), and Natal Shopping (Natal-RN).  The points are of the Wallbox type, which have a medium load and capacity for one vehicle at a time.

The others are on the highways that connect the states and are part of the experimental phase that has been taking place in order to evaluate the autonomy of the cars, their performance in everyday situations and to define adjustments and improvements. On the highways, the recharging points are in the SuperChargers format, which allows a quick charge - about 30 minutes - and two vehicles being charged at the same time.  There are 12 in total, two of them at Senai/Cimatec (Salvador-BA) and one in each of the following locations - Feira de Santana (BA), Praia do Forte (Mata de São João-BA), Massarandupió (Entre Rios-BA), Estância (SE), Porto Real do Colégio (AL), Rio Largo (AL), Escada (PE), Jaboatão dos Guararapes (PE), João Pessoa (PB) and Parnamirim (RN).

"This is an important challenge for Neoenergia, because we are elaborating a business model for the viability and functionality of the electric road. Our goal is to make the Green Corridor commercially viable, so the project covers models that address this while promoting sustainable initiatives for all. We recognize the importance of guaranteeing sustainable development through measures aimed at fighting climate change and the investment in electric mobility is part of this commitment," says the corporate manager of Research and Development at Neoenergia, José Brito.

The Green Corridor project also covers the development of two applications. One of them is an exclusive application for drivers to follow information about the location of the stations, the type of plug and payment. The other is directed to the management of the electrical stations, with data from the recharging stations and price definition. In addition, the company is in progress with an experimentation laboratory created to analyze pricing scenarios for vehicle users.

The use of the electric car reduces the emission of greenhouse gases, contributing to the decarbonization of the planet. Besides the environmental benefit, the electric car has other advantages, such as efficiency.  The electric vehicle runs 100 kilometers for less when compared to other fuels.  All these factors combined contribute to stimulating ecological awareness and investment in 'green' initiatives.
