Iberdrola in Brazil
An energy giant in Brazil
We operate in the areas of generation, transmission, distribution and commercialisation in Brazil. We are present in 18 states and the Federal District and we are the main private electricity company with a presence in the network business, listed on the São Paulo B3.
More than two decades ago, at Iberdrola we set ourselves a challenge for Brazil: to build a more sustainable and affordable electricity model for its citizens. In line with the global movement for energy transition, we have been pioneers in the generation of renewable energy in the country and have invested in wind energy since the beginning of the 21st century. Now we continue to develop new environmentally friendly projects and drive new technologies for smart grids.
Iberdrola, key to the energy transition in Brazil
Iberdrola's subsidiary in Brazil, Neoenergia External link, opens in new window. has been driving sustainable development in the country since its creation in 1997. After the incorporation of Elektro Holding in 2017, the company began to form part of the giant of the Brazilian and Latin American electricity market. But Neoenergia's big leap came in 2019 with its listing on the São Paulo Stock Exchange, which led it to become the leading private electricity company with a presence in the network business. In addition, the company accelerated its commitment to Brazil in 2021 with the acquisition of CEB Distribuição, the Brasilia distribution company.
