Brazil: without transformation capacity

If there is a common characteristic of Brazilian governments, for decades on end, it is the incapacity of the electric sector to evolve.

We don't have the programs that are so successful in a list of countries that encourage the efficient use of energy for residential, business and institutional use.

Brazil is not preparing (as it should) for the era of electric vehicles, creating the necessary infrastructure and regulations that aim to signal the charging of batteries in a structured way and seeking minimum costs.

The most obvious result of this scenario is how we are falling behind. For years we have been the highest power cost among the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) in $/MWh.

When will we have the courage, the drive and commitment to turn around this situation?
