Our energy for the future

CBA generates electricity from renewable and sustainable sources.

The transition to a carbon-neutral energy mix is more urgent than ever, and is among our priorities. We generate electricity at 21 hydropower plants in the South, Southeast and Midwest of Brazil, with an installed capacity of 1.4 GW. CBA operates 0.6 GW of this total capacity, and partner joint ventures operate the remaining 0.8 GW.

Having renewable generation capabilities at the heart of our business ensures a self-sufficient supply of electricity to our plants. It also creates new business opportunities for the future, such as selling surplus electricity to the National Grid.

As in everything we do, we manage our hydropower plants with a focus on occupational and operational safety and quality of service.
