Energy

With presence in the national market since 1999, Eldorado Research Institute strongly acts in the Research, Development and Innovation (R,D&I) field and presents a broad portfolio of projects in the Energy sector.

Our Expertise

Eldorado presents a broad portfolio of projects in the Energy sector, working in all stages of the technological innovation cycle, with current and future topics, such as:

  • Communication and Security Systems;
  • Operation and Dispatch Supervision Systems;
  • Business Intelligence (BI) Systems;
  • Digital Security of Intelligent Electronic Devices;
  • Energy Efficiency Applied Technologies;
  • Energy Storage System;
  • Systems of Monitoring, Controlling and Managing Distributed Generation Areas;
  • Computer Vision, Image Analysis and Virtual Reality;
  • Advanced Measurement Systems.

Today, the Institute alredy has several successful projects in the area. Among them, there is a partnership with a large Southeast concessionaire for the development of an interactive platform that aims to train electricians, through an immersion in a virtual environment, in a safe and efficient way. It is also worth mentioning the project in partnership with an energy distributor for the construction of a system to support the decision of the company’s operations centers, improving the control of the power demand on the power grid. Other important projects are the automatic and noninvasive electric power consumption meters evaluator, and the Smart Grid hub, a hybrid element that provides an infrastructure for the deployment of smart grids.

In the Northeast region, Eldorado has worked in research and solution development for indoor lighting using Organic LED technologies (OLEDs), considered the next generation of lamps for domestic and commercial lighting. There is also the Headset, an integrated communication and inspection solution for maintenance crews of field distribution networks, among others.

Beyond that, Eldorado has a network of partners in the energy sector and in the academic area, that allows project development since its conception, in basic research, up to the market integration support. Finally, the Institute has a wide range of customers and working areas, that ensures interaction and accelerates the knowledge absorption of new technologies, applications and creations of market innovations.

Eldorado’s staff is highly qualified to provide quick answers to the demands of partners, specially with the presentation of prototypes and concept tests to better parameterization of functional and non-functional requirements.
