Energy (Brazil): who represents us?

The overwhelming majority of the representativeness of the electricity sector agents is concentrated in the "wing" of the providers. Generators, distributors, traders, etc.

The consumers, on the other hand, have a much less important representativeness.

Although the residential load is important in GW, compared to the national demand for electricity, reality shows that these consumers do not, in fact, influence regulation.

Likewise, thousands of companies and institutions, which represent a nice slice of the pie, do not have powerful interlocutors. The exception concerns large consumers - a few dozen, which have powerful channels of dialogue.

And this scenario points to a simple reality: the market is in the hands of the providers. It is very difficult to imagine that Brazil will gain a competitive position in the market (I am referring especially to the BRICS - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).
