ABOUT US       
  Every day, all around the world, our people generate and distribute the electricity that accelerates businesses, energizes hospitals and schools, and elevates the quality of life.

Combining deep local insights, global presence and perspective, and a relentless commitment to operational excellence and values, we help communities and countries grow through reliable and responsible electric power. We operate in extremely diverse markets, from the world’s most developed countries to some of the fastest growing economies. Everywhere we operate, we believe that dependable electricity is essential to human progress and to advancing economic growth, public health and security.

As one of the world’s largest power companies, AES owns and operates a diverse and growing portfolio of generation and distribution businesses with the capacity to serve 100 million people worldwide. Our power plants encompass a broad range of technologies and fuel types, from coal to gas to renewables such as wind, hydro and biomass. Our utilities power major cities, from São Paulo to Indianapolis to Douala. Beyond power, we also mine coal, turn seawater into drinking water, and are committing significant resources to alternative sources of energy to ensure a sustainable future. We also are building a climate change business, to develop projects that offset greenhouse gas emissions and produce emissions offset credits.

AES brings the combined expertise of a global force of 27,000 people to each of our businesses. Sharing knowledge among that network is a core component of the way AES does business. It’s how we work, and how we improve. Our customers and business partners count on the unique insights of our people, benefiting from the collective experience of AES. That’s why we deploy networks of experts—circulating ingenuity and best practices throughout our global enterprise to continually bring insights and expertise to each particular challenge.

AES has always been a values-driven company. Rooted in the cultures in which we live and work, we are dedicated to improving the lives of the people we serve. Honoring our commitments to all of our stakeholders—our customers, teammates, communities, owners, suppliers and partners—is explicitly part of our shared values. Our stated values put safety first and stress that all of our people act with integrity and strive for excellence. We also embrace having fun through work. It’s a unique aspect of our culture and people, who bring to work every day a passion and belief that AES can and does make a difference. These values both reflect who we are, and help to shape our future and the world around us.


AES History

For more than two decades, AES has helped drive energy sector growth and pioneered advances in many markets, generating global industry leadership from innovation and operational excellence.

AES is a global power company with generation and distribution businesses across five continents.  Founded in 1981, AES built its first power plant in 1985 in Texas, which was also one of the first competitive power plants in the United States.  During AES’s first five years, we added three plants in the US, and began looking for opportunities to take our financing, construction and operational experience global.

In the early 1990’s, as markets opened up globally, AES began generating electricity in the United Kingdom, and expanded to Argentina, Pakistan, China, Hungary and Brazil.  An early mover, in 1998 we acquired a minority stake in a power plant in the first and only generation privatization in India.  In West Africa and Central America, we have brought electricity to places that never knew reliable power, while electrifying urban centers, including São Paulo and Indianapolis.  We have helped pioneer new pollution control technologies and biomass conversions while expanding — to Qatar, Oman, Sri Lanka, Cameroon—and more recently to Bulgaria, where we are building our single largest greenfield project investment to date.  We have also brought renewable sources of energy to market through acquisition and development through AES Wind Generation in the US, China and Europe, and AES Solar Energy, LLC our JV with Riverstone Holdings.  

Today, through our portfolio of thermal and renewable fuel sources -- biomass, coal, diesel, gas, hydropower, solar, wind - we safely provide affordable and sustainable energy in 29 countries.  Throughout our history, the people of AES have always stayed at the forefront of change, as a positive force in the energy sector as well as the communities in which we work and live.  With significant global reach, deep local knowledge and distinctive operational skills, we are committed to operational excellence and to meeting the world's changing energy needs.
