Golden opportunity!

Electric vehicles are here to stay! This is the dominant perception in developed countries, from the main communication channels specialized in energy that I follow in my daily life!

The question that has been asked is how to charge the batteries of these vehicles.

Solution providers, the electricity sector's production supply chain and automakers agree that the most efficient, interesting and convenient charging is "off-peak".

That is, taking advantage of the "valleys" of the national demand curve to avoid that additional relevant investments are necessary, increasing the cost of energy.

The strategy is to focus on loading between the end of the night and the beginning of the morning of the next day, when demand is naturally lower.

So....what strategy will Brazil come up with?
