We are the EDP Group's Research and Development Centre

Our focus is on working every day to invent the future of energy and contribute to a carbon-free society.


We aim to become a reference in the energy sector by consistently participating in early stages of technology and knowledge development.

To carry out our ambition we adopted a project-based structure which suits our concept of NEW R&D Centre, allowing a swift approach to project implementation. Notwithstanding, synergies among the projects are explored to encourage efficient use of resourced, and the energy sector is our background scope and therefore continually surveyed.

We boast over 50 researchers, more than 40 projects in our portfolio and we will continue to grow. We want to do more and be more. That is why every day at NEW we work to be a leading R&D centre for innovation and knowledge sharing, creating superior value to EDP Group and society.

Our values

We aim to improve the quality of life of future generations, by developing new solutions and opportunities that respond to the challenges of the energy sector.
We are aligned with the guidelines of the EU and the EDP Group, to achieve the goals of decarbonization and energy transition.
We work with highly qualified professionals who are part of diverse, inclusive, and collaborative teams.
We are committed to transparency, integrity, and technical rigor in everything we do.
