Energy: a challenging scenario in Brazil

Energy: a challenging scenario in Brazil

The metrics used to assess electricity supply, demand and costs point to a challenging scenario.

DEMAND
for energy is following the economy, which is growing

OFFER
is stressed by the low level of the reservoirs (hydroelectricity accounts for about 70% of the country's power mix) and the expectations of the La Nina (no rains) phenomena

COST
The report from the National System Operator points to R$ 744/MWh (about USD 140/MWh) for the Marginal Cost of Operations for this coming week.

For those who need to craft energy contracting strategies for their businesses, these times require proactivity and the search for knowledge so that quality decisions can be made.
