Energy indicators

In the situation presented here in Brazil, of an important crisis in the electricity sector, there is a natural need to know about alternatives.

To compare alternatives it is necessary to have a ranking. I always recommend to my clients that they keep updated tables with the costs of each contractible source for their case.

This makes it easy to find out which sources deserve to be studied in depth. Whether for cost arbitrage or as a risk management tool.

This table includes electricity from the public grid (regulated or deregulated), piped natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, diesel, solar, biomass, among others.

There is usually a whole world to be discovered. It will be worth exploring the possibilities of your company or institution. That's for sure!
