The race: electric vehicles and the electrical grid

The world has become accustomed to the idea that vehicles need to be electric to meet a list of environmental demands.

Electric vehicle manufacturers are already offering a variety of models and exponentially increasing their production.

The big challenge - and one that requires careful planning - is the supply of electrical energy to charge these vehicles. This involves the entire value chain -  generation, transmission and distribution.

And most importantly: security so that investors are interested in placing tens of billions Dollars needed to make it happen and at the speed required to meet demand.

Will Brazil have the capacity to organize itself on the supply side?
