Strategic Planning

In compliance with the Climate Change Policy, Copel’s Strategic Planning contemplates aspects such as climate scenarios and risks, business prospects, as well as the evaluation of emissions and the development of a neutrality plan for the coming years.

As an unfolding measure of the strategic planning, Copel is studying the expansion of its renewable matrix and the offer of new services, which represent a challenge for the Company, both for the execution of the activity and for economic feasibility.

Within the possibilities, Copel manages demand, improves energy and operational efficiency, implements distributed generation by means of new wind power plants and photovoltaic panels, makes use of energy from biomass and biogas, implements smart electricity grids, stimulates the use of electricity for the transportation and mobility sector, as well as expanding centralized renewable energy generation ventures.

Commitments and Goals


As a resulting measure of its Climate Change Policy, Copel shall comply with the following commitments:


Performing GGE emission

mitigation within the Company

processes and activities.

● Fleet: fostering renewable fuel use and electric car usage.

● Developing energy efficiency, including: renovating air

conditioning system, lamp change for LED lamps, etc.).

● Sponsoring projects that aim at decreasing GGE

emission or that enable carbon sequestration.

● Keeping generation matrix predominantly with low

emission sources.

● Developing renewable power generation projects.

● Fostering Distance Learning and on-line meetings.

● Intensifying actions for technical loss decrease by means

of network automation.

● Expanding the power park with new power sources with

low GGE emission.

● Releasing at most 0.0890 tCO2/MW.h of generated

power by 2025, considering Brazil ́s expansion power

and the possible input of new undertakings within the

Company power matrix.

Qualifying and fostering value chain

to mitigate and GGE emissions.

● Attending forums, discussion groups and alike related to

climate change.

● Disclosing yearly, in Public Records, Copel GGE

emission inventory, checked by a third party.
