Energy: cost increase x rationing

For now in Brazil, Government officials point to a scenario in which the increase in regulated tariffs and deregulated power costs would be only but a natural factor to stimulate the reduction of power consumption.

In the same token, the challenges posed by the current water crisis (reservoirs that feed the hydro power plants) would be resolved without the need of a rationing.

Are you comfortable with this approach?

Prudence recommends that companies and institutions prepare also for a more challenging scenario.

After all, leaving it to the last minute before a rationing, is always more difficult and, above all, more costly too.

If in your assessment it is important to be prepared, count on me to create an alternative plan.
