Energy: How to turn around?

Focus on sources that offer electricity with less emissions is the name of the game. it's a global consensus! Countries are adopting policies to make their matrices cleaner.

The vast majority, whether residential, business or institutional consumers are in line with this strategy.

My suggestion now is to be "picky" about how energy is consumed and priced.

Investments in the supply side of the electricity sector's production chain depend on the maximum demand they need to meet. The challenge therefore is requiring less maximum demand.

This recommendation is a win-win.. For providers, capacity release avoiding new and heavy investments. For consumers tariff based on capacity would be created to offer an attractive tool for those who are efficient, requiring less capacity.

And the good news: there are so many and well kwon options to "make it happen". It's high time to advance!
