Energy: Is improvisation interesting?

I feel that we Brazilians are proud to be improvisers. Improvising is a characteristic very much associated with creativity.

However, in the electricity sector, which is capital intensive, competitive success in a global comparison depends essentially on careful planning both in the choice and implementation of projects and in their operation and maintenance.

These are two important aspects. 1) Creating robust, defensible strategies based on established engineering practices and 2) setting up plans with solid timelines. 

Our perceptions and motivations need to change. To focus on what really matters, which is having competitive energy, with respect to China, India, Russia and South Africa - the "emerging" group of countries.
