"Worrying, not alarming"

The title of this post reflects the official posture of the electric power sector in relation to the upcoming energy crisis.

The underlying message is: business as usual. Or even worse, there would be no need to plan to face a potentially delicate situation.

Clearly, the preference of the electric sector leaders is for "letting it go". And in this line of thought, electric energy consumers feel comfortable adopting a passive posture.

In a healthy environment, the attitude would be preparing for challenging scenarios, so that alternatives could be explored and especially defined, seeking solutions that would make their operations viable with predictable and acceptable costs.
