Innovation is in Celsia’s DNA and culture; it is a transversal axis of the Organization and is implicit in the Pillars that state: “We dare to be different” and “We are agile and reliable.”
GRI (3-3) Innovation allows us to generate new business models and be flexible when it comes to finding a solution that suits our clients, allowing us to better manage our assets to contribute substantially to the diversification of the country’s energy matrix and present innovative solutions that have a positive impact on all Stakeholders.
GRI (3–3) (2-23) (2-24) (2-25) (2-29) Our Strategic Business Planning is defined by horizons in which innovation is present in each of them, but with greater emphasis on the medium (H3) and long term (H4). The Innovation Team guides the incubation of business ideas or the use of technologies up to the Commercial Pilot Stage, so that there is a progressive integration of key areas to refine and scale the product (H2) and, finally consolidate it as a business in commercial operation (H1).
In 2022, we structured the Innovation-Support Engineering Alliance for the technical-economic referencing of H2 production and use technologies. We also achieved the technical conceptualization and different mobility-business schemes with buses. These sketches were extrapolated for small-scale mobility projects in other locations.
Innovation is in Celsia’s DNA and culture. Through the “We dare to be different” Pillar, we express our intention to set ourselves challenges and development paths to break paradigms and seek new ways of doing things in all the Organization’s teams.
