Energy in the world and in Brazil

Brazil has a predominantly renewable energy matrix. This is great from an emissions perspective.

Developed countries are also acting to make their matrices more renewable. And the expectation is that they will be much cleaner in a few years.

Switching to renewables will reduce electricity costs by avoiding the use of expensive fuels. And the difference, which will be felt in the future, is the greater competitiveness of these countries

If Brazil maintains the current strategy of including a list of ongoing costs (associated with sweetheart deals) that are apportioned in the tariffs charged, the result will be an even greater distance in $/MWh from the countries in the forefront.

It is high time to "wake up" to this challenge and take the necessary steps. Or else continue at the bottom of the market (for the time being only in relation to the BRICS - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).
