An opportunity scenario (Brazil)

The situation of cheap energy supply in the free market is at risk, especially due to the low level of the reservoirs that feed our hydroelectric plants.

One possibility, which I suggested on another similar occasion, for an industrial client, a free consumer, was to stop its operations and sell energy on the spot.

It may seem crazy, but for those operations in which the electric bill is Top 5, and the spot reaches a multiple of the firm contracted price, this possibility brings greater results than those of the business operation itself!

The secret is to be prepared in advance.

If you want to know more about this opportunity make sure to get in touch!
