Endesa’s Brazilian electricity distribution subsidiary Coelce has won an award for having the highest service quality of any electricity distributor in the country in the annual league table prepared by Aneel (Agencia Nacional de Energía Eléctrica – the National Electric Energy Agency). This league table was prepared for the first time in 2011, with Coelce being chosen from among the 63 companies analysed.
The league table was based on assessment of the Global Continuity Performance (GCP) indicator, which compares limits for a number of parameters set by Aneel. This measures the duration and frequency of interruptions to supply per unit of consumption over a particular time period ranging from one month to one year.
Aneel’s league table provides an incentive for distribution companies to continuously improve service quality. The regulatory body also believes that this league table helps to improve transparency in continuity of supply indicators, encouraging the whole of society to get involved in the process. The league table incorporates the latest and best international practices whilst taking into account the realities of the market in Brazil.
