3  innovation opportunities (Brazil)

The challenges posed in the electricity sector open the door to innovative solutions, which have the potential to reduce the cost of electricity by USD billions per year!

1.Electric instant showers

More than 50 million units are installed in Brazil. They represent the largest unit load in the country.

Innovation: program to stimulate its off-peak use associated with a financial bonus to customers who go for it!

2. Platform for exchanging contracted demands

The changes that companies and institutions are exposed  require physical demands that also change.

Innovation: platform that allows concessionaires to offer more flexibility in contracted demands without losing their revenues.

3. Electricity tariff based on demand

With the increase in the penetration of renewable energy in the country's energy matrix, a new reality emerges. The cost of energy providers is fixed and …not variable like the current tariff structure.

Innovation: modeling of monthly fixed tariff, per contracted kW.

Make sure to request a 1-hour virtual meeting to learn the rationale for these proposals and how entrepreneurs  could make them commercially viable. Send an email to
