How to deal with volatility?

Brazil has not built new hydroelectric plants with reservoirs, for many years

The preference has been for run-of-river plants.

It results in the need to dispatch thermal plants, much more expensive since the rainfall regime can vary, and quite a lot, from year to year.

This has been the normal situation!

The difference between those who obtain competitive energy prices and all the others, is the contracting strategy to mitigate this risk.

Does your company or institution address this issue?
