Strategy: energy prices (Brazil)

One of the most important steps in dealing with the energy bill of companies and institutions is to be clear about the risks to which the prices of each source (electricity, gas, biomass, etc.) are exposed.

And, in the same vein, the ways of mitigating them.

This is not a theoretical issue. On the contrary, it is very practical and has a strong influence on the competitiveness of the final cost of the energy bill for each case analyzed.

At stake, to illustrate, important themes to consider:

* Exchange R$ x hard currencies
* Petrobras' future price policy
* Expected evolution of ANEEL tariffs and market free prices
* Criteria for dispatch of thermal plants by ONS

And so it is possible to create a portfolio of sources that offers an attractive final cost in the face of the identified risks.
