I assume that power systems are look-alike everywhere. Each has a generation subsystem, transmission subsystem, and distribution subsystem. It differs on how to deal with investors, contractors, and consumers. I like to make some comparisons whenever it is applicable to have lessons of success and fail, too.

Really interesting to see your comparisons, Dr. Khashab. Was there anything in particular that stood out in terms of transferrable lessons to be learned, i.e. something the Egyptian power industry does that the Brazilian industry should look to replicate and vice versa?

Hi Matt

Thanks for your words.

The most interesting was the continuous claim of Mr. Rafael HerzBerg about the spot market of electricity and how it is a volatile one. When I went through my investigation I discovered the secret: Brazil has regulated and deregulated electric systems. Egypt as well as Saudi Arabia have regulated systems securing stable electricity tariffs for all consumer types. Although tariffs are subject to modifications year by year.
