Enel Brasil Participações Ltda. is a subsidiary of Enel Green Power dedicated to the development and management of power generation from renewable resources in Brazil, since 2006.

The company has around 200 employees working in the offices of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Salvador, Cuiabá and Palmas, besides in the power plants, where we operate 20 small hydro plants with total installed capacity of 93 MW (fully distributed within the hydroelectric), in the states of Mato Grosso, Tocantins and Sao Paulo and 144 MW of wind power plants in the states of Bahia and Rio Grande do Norte.
