Recession scenario: what to do?

How will the recession that is taking hold of the global economy affect the decisions of companies and institutions regarding their power/energy needs?

The world crisis is associated with super high inflation. The prices of energy sources (especially gasoline, diesel, and gas)  have soared. And they show in-elasticity. In other words, consumption remains high.

But the prices of products and services of companies and institutions that, of course, use power/energy, cannot - in general - be adjusted in the same proportion as inflation.

In other words, the great challenge becomes REDUCE energy consumption and CHANGE, whenever possible, the sources contracted, seeking those that best respond to these turbulent times.

The good news is that there are solutions that deserve to be prospected, evaluated and considered in this new scenario. Whoever does this has the chance to achieve an important competitive advantage!
