Brazil: are we ready for the challenge?

Electricity supply is “going down” and demand going up.” A dangerous combination that puts its availability and prices at risk.

What most impresses those who rely on planning to guide the activities of their companies and institutions is the lack of official commitment with the crisis situation.

So far, it is not known what will be done to mitigate this crisis, whose contours are already proving to be dramatic for the coming months.

Meanwhile, Brazil is a laggard in the ranking of electricity costs (with respect to BRICS - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa)....but who cares?

Rafael, I hope you post your question on an energy portal frequented by residents of  BRICS, and if you get an answer share it here on Energy Central.

Because in the race for low-cost electricity, the U.S. struggling at the back of the pack with Germany, Denmark, and other countries mindlessly obsessed with wind and solar energy.

We're not the ones to ask.
