Electric energy tariffs: the necessary evolution

A set of innovations is changing the face of electricity consumption.

Renewable energy - par excellence - is really entering the energy matrix of countries and, accordingly, bringing new challenges.

The traditional pricing model, in place for over a century, needs to be evolved to reflect the costs incurred. So it will be possible and feasible to find out how to minimize them.

One proposal I present is for energy users whether small or large, to back their consumption by contracted volumes of a "take or pay" nature.

This way, each client will have more motivation to search for efficiency in a systematic way. In the current format for regulated energy users, the cost of energy is, to a large extent, variable.

But in real life it, with renewable becoming more and more fixed, which clashes with the reality of investments and associated costs of the new production chain.

For those who want to explore this evolution, I am open and willing to discuss it!
