Know why to invest in ENGIE Brasil Energia

ENGIE Brasil Energia S.A. is part of the largest independent power producer in the country, ENGIE, being also an active agent in the commercialization of energy. In 2017, the Company entered the transmission segment and, in 2018, acquired the remaining 50% of ENGIE Geração Solar Distribuída, as well as initiated energy trading operations. The year of 2019 marked the debut in the Brazilian natural gas segment by acquiring a stake in Transportadora Associada de Gás (TAG).

ENGIE Brasil Energia is controlled by French-Belgian group ENGIE, a global leader in the independent production of energy with its activities in more than 70 countries. ENGIE is a major operator in the electricity, natural gas and energy services.

At the end of the second quarter of 2021, our own installed capacity is of 8,958 MW, operating a generating complex of 10,679 MW, comprises 68 plants, of which 11 are hydroelectric, four thermoelectric and 53 fired from complementary sources - three biomass-fired plants, 46 wind power plants, two small hydroelectric plants (PCHs) and two solar plants - of which 64 are wholly-owned by the Company and four are jointly-owned through consortia with other companies.

In Jirau Hydroelectric Power Plant, located at the Madeira River in Porto Velho (RO), with 3,750 MW, our parent company holds a 40% stake, which means an own installed capacity of 1,500 MW at that plant. This capacity, together with ENGIE Brasil Energia's own total, amounts to 10,458 MW in 69 plants, which corresponds to a participation of the group of 6.3% in the Brazilian market.

A total of 89% of our installed capacity in Brazil comes from clean, renewable sources with low greenhouse gas emissions, a position which has been further enhanced by the construction of new wind farms in the Northeast region of the country.

Over 20 years of operation in the Brazilian market, we have more than doubled our installed capacity, with high operational performance and consistent average growth in net revenue, Ebitda and net income financial indicators - demonstrating a sustainable financial performance. These factors and a clear business strategy allow the Company to remain well positioned to capture new business opportunities.
