Successful strategies?

The big difference between what is happening in developed countries and Brazil in the energy area is, in my view, the interest of the value chain providers in discovering and exploring win-win opportunities.

They realized that the end result is much better when alternatives focused on energy efficient contracting and use are implemented in an agreed manner.

And because of this stance, a list of programs thrive for the good of the entire community.

In Brazil, "sameness" prevails. For a simple reason, which I hear even from executives from local concessionaires: it is easier and simpler to maintain the current system, which is based on passing on costs to tariffs.

We are not facing the "duck curve". We do not have a demand response program in place. Preparations for a fleet of electric vehicles were not even launched. We are not facing (as we should)  the power theft that represents USD billions. And the list goes on.

When will we have leaders in tune with the need to pair up with the "front platoon"?
