Neoenergia, innovation is one of the main tools to ensure sustainability, efficiency and competitiveness, in addition to being a strategic variable that affects all its businesses and activities. The alignment of this strategy was carried out by updating the Group's Values and by unifying it into one
Purpose, which defines Innovation as a priority for the continuous company's success in face of a scenario of drastic changes and constantly evolving.

In April 2020, the Superintendence underwent a repositioning and was renamed
SIS - Superintendence of Innovation and Sustainability to reflect its skills more assertively. In this organic process, two Managements were structured: Innovation and Quality, and Sustainability and Climate Change
The company also collaborates with different universities and reference institutions, forming a diversified network of partners that contribute to identifying the best way to solve the opportunities diagnosed by the company's business areas, among a portfolio of possible developments.
