a few years ago, the italian philosopher giorgio agamben wrote: what we usually call contemporary is most likely something timeless: something that happens without precedent, unexpectedly.

a very suggestive concept for the complex scenario that we have been experiencing since the first 21st century lights were turned on, with high velocity proliferation of research, languages, procedures, intentions and understandings.

we, at cpfl institute, face the challenge of integrating different projects in a sustainable manner, focusing in the following areas: social, cultural and sports activities in the communities where the cpfl energia group operates.

our projects range from supporting and constructing public policies, a travelling mobile cinema, and road races - which involve thousands of people, to encouraging reading in a mobile library that travels to small rural towns across the country.

over the years, we have consolidated our experience in organizing and spreading knowledge about the contemporary world, and, from 2020 we have enhanced our social development programs, concentrating even more investments in actions that transform realities in the communities where we operate.

we believe this model actively creates social protagonists and their work, qualifying and legitimizing each actor to face contemporary social challenges.

energy efficiency
the cpfl in hospitals program, focusing on energy efficiency, has invested R$ 150 million in solar energy photovoltaic projects to foster the improvement of public health. energia solar fotovoltaica.

in addition to lowering bills in hospitals, the initiative also generates environmental gains: lower consumption of electricity prevents, for example, the use of thermal plants, which are more expensive and polluting.

>>literary cart

the literary cart is a traveling library with a collection of 500 books, to encourage reading and to develop new readers.

the cart also offers games, puppets and the book collection catalog. after a year, the cart and the books are donated to the municipality, which becomes responsible for the management and continuity of the project.
