Energy (Brazil): what's the most likely scenario?

Energy (Brazil): what's the most likely scenario?

Corporate and institutional upper managers have the statutory mandate to create energy strategies, as this is usually a Top 10 or even Top 5 cost.

Considering the ongoing situation in Brazil and the institutions of the power sector, what to "bet on": prices rising, stationary or falling?

And here comes the challenge. The risks to which bets are exposed.

For example. if the scenario chosen is of a price increase and this is not confirmed. Solutions (contracted) of energy efficiency will not result in the expected return.

Or the opposite. The bet would be for a price reduction and the decision was not to invest in energy efficiency, for lack of viability.

At the heart of the issue is risk identification and mitigation. It will be worth exploring this theme as the differences in results can be huge!

 Can price of product  be a choice in free market mechanizm ? I think  it is a byproduct . In Electricity , LCOE is bounded withen techinal and economic constrains. Some contrains may be risky and cost money for mitigation ( such as using local coal as fuel ) . Here , price will increase . But one cannot exlude local coal as fuel , to decrease electricty price , if he has not financial capablity to import natural gas .
