Aliança 2.0 program will help companies reduce energy costs

A joint initiative by Eletrobras, the National Confederation of Industry (CNI) and the Association of Large Industrial Energy Consumers and Free Consumers (Abrace) promises to help companies reduce the cost of electricity. The initiative, called Programa Aliança 2.0, is aimed at increasing energy efficiency gains in industrial production processes. Interested parties must participate in a public call that will analyze the demands.Aliança 2.0 program will help companies reduce energy costsAliança 2.0 program will help companies reduce energy costs

Aliança 2.0, which is part of the actions of the National Electric Energy Conservation Program (Procel), aims to serve 24 industries that make intensive use of energy in their production processes. From 2022 to 2025, R$ 20 million will be allocated to these industries for the development of energy efficiency projects.

Through the program, the selected companies will each receive R$ 400 thousand and will need to offer a counterpart in the same amount. In addition, companies will have to commit to implementing an action plan, built together with the project’s technical team, to make industrial processes more efficient from an energy point of view.

Companies from any industrial sector with a minimum consumption of 10 megawatts (MW) of average power (87,600 MWh/year) or equivalent amount in thermal energy (gas and fuels) can participate in the Aliança program.

According to CNI, in the first phase of the program, 12 industrial plants in the steel, chemical, automobile and cement sectors were served. Most of the projects involved process optimization, without the need to change equipment.

“Of a total of BRL 198 million in consumption reduction opportunities identified, 61% were approved and implemented by companies, generating annual savings of BRL 122 million. In terms of energy, the consumption of 176 GWh was avoided [o equivalente ao consumo mensal de quase 1,1 milhão de residências]”, informed the CNI.

Enrollment began in May, and the public notice for the program is on a permanent basis, that is, it will only be finalized when the 24 industries are selected. To enroll in the program, simply access the Alliance 2.0 page

Companies that participated in the first stage will be able to apply again, as long as they have industrial plants that were not selected in the previous edition.
