Concessionaires: what are the new demands?

The "new normal" that has been talked about in these pandemic times, should bring about an important change in the Brazilian electricity sector.

Concessionaires, more specifically, have always lived by simply transferring their costs to tariffs.

But....even being theoretically a monopoly in its concession areas, is now being challenged by real competitors:

1) Other available energy sources 
2) Distributed generation
3) Energy efficiency
4) Demand control
5) On-peak power generation
6) Energy storage

And the list goes on!

For those concessionaires that want to proactively "capture" their customers and expand their range of alternatives, it is necessary to "turn around" their reactive posture..

Concessionaire consultants have a new opportunity. If you wish to explore this aspect, I am available to offer suggestions. There is a huge potential to generate value for the concessionaires and their customers.
