Electricity sector and COVID-19: strategic similarities

Exponent Brazilian epidemiologists have repeated systematically that in order to draw a good strategy to face COVID-19, it is necessary to have a robust information base (tests in a representative portion of the population).

Brazil is one of the laggard countries in relation to these tests. The authorities then need to manage the hospital occupation pandemic. In other words, REACTING to the given situation.

The countries that obtained the best results in face of COVID-19, developed a strategy of first testing the population and then deciding about the appropriate conduct.

The Brazilian electricity sector follows the same approach. Always REACTING. The PRO-ACTIVITY that characterizes the countries with the best cost metrics is not part of our profile.

When are we going to change the strategy?
