Energy (Brazil): Are we agile, proactive and creative?

News that has been circulating in the energy arena realizes that "the solution for GSF will be fast and adjusted", statement by Rui Altieri Chairman of the Board of Directors of CCEE (Chamber of Commercialization of Electric Energy - the official power clearinghouse) to Canal Energia.

Taken in an Isolated fashion it is great news. But putting it in perspective it is a shame! 5 years to solve. USD 2 Billion (in round numbers) of default by CCEE. In addition to the expressive value, the systematic lack of credibility since CCEE is actually an official institution. 

The demand response program did not take off  in Brazil because no one would believe that CCEE would pay for the settlements.

What analysis do you prefer to do: that  the power sector has taken a big, great step or that it only shows (again) that it is an apathetic, slow and the most expensive electrical sector among the BRICS?
