Gas vs. electricity arbitration (Brazil)

Mitigating risks arising from high electricity prices and even a blackout/rationing is a prudent stance.

In this scenario, gas is an alternative that deserves consideration.

I recommend evaluating energy conversion processes that could use NG/LNG and other sources.

Each customer has:

1) A specific current electricity cost
2) Cost of the gas solution considering investments
3) Perceived cost of power outages (blackouts/rationing)

Make sure to dive into this matter (and quickly)!
