Research and Development

The Research and Development (R&D) program was established in an effort to encourage the constant pursuit of innovation and address the technological challenges facing the power sector. Electricity distribution, generation and transmission concessionaires and licensees must invest an annual minimum percentage of their net operating revenue in the R&D program. The mandatory investment of these funds has been established by law and in concession contracts, and ANEEL is responsible to regulate the investment in the program, assess and approve the conditions for executing the research and monitor the results.
