Votorantim’s expertise that became a business in the market

100 years before Votorantim Energy was founded, Votorantim had already begun to invest in electrical energy generation for its own needs: the Pilar Power Plant with three installed MWs, inaugurated in 1912 – the first of 35 currently under our management. This milestone in the history of Brazilian industry initiated our learning about energy management and generation: to produce and manage energy for our own consumption.

The Pilar Power Plant (today PCH Votorantim) was opened in the region of Sorocaba, in the interior of the state of Sao Paulo, by a Portuguese immigrant named Antônio Pereira Ignacio, who would later found Votorantim.  The Pilar Plant was opened with the intention of generating energy for the cement company Rodovalho, one of Ignacio´s companies at that time.

    

Years of consumption management experience accumulated with the concrete, aluminum, cellulose and steel plants, in addition to the hydroelectric plants, resulted in the formation of the company as it exists today.  It was the year 2000.  The name, Votorantim Energy.  The mission was still to manage and produce energy for the use of companies belonging to the group.

    

The reality of the Brazilian energy market changed dramatically with the arrival of the Free Energy Market in 1995.  With the future in the process of becoming the present, and bigger challenges to be confronted every day, we made a great leap forward. To offer our expertise to companies that, like us, need to manage their energy consumption to make their businesses more economical and viable: why not?  

We believe that technological innovation is essential to our products and services, and we have not compromised our social or environmental consciousness for even a minute.

“I love planning trips, and learning about the destination and its customs. Sometimes I enjoy that more than the trip itself. Going to the movies on a Sunday evening makes my weekends feel longer. I love the environment at the office and feel very motivated to work with renewable energy, which I believe to be the future.”
