Energy (Brazil): what should be the priority?

Energy (Brazil): what should be the priority?

It would be wonderful if the Brazilian electricity sector were clear about its priorities.

What has been observed for a long time has been movements that tend to follow the "political correctness" imported from developed countries but associated with our super complicated regulations.

The fact is that these movements led us to become laggards (BRICS - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) in costs charged to consumers (USD/MWh). About 50% higher!

I dare to suggest an important change here. Competitiveness should be the name of the game. This should be the priority; Find out what to do to turn around this situation and put Brazil in the "front squad".

Definitely our leaders (those who have been conducting the electricity sector for many years in a row) do not have the required profile. They had every opportunity but no virtuous results.

Times for a huge change are demanded!
