Energy & sense of urgency

The electricity crisis in Brazil has been known for many months.The posted challenge of the supply to meet demand, due to the water crisis (2/3 of the country's power matrix is hydroelectric).

The official approach is simple and familiar. No "hashing"! The Government - clearly - is betting that "in the end" the rains will return in time to "rescue" the reservoirs.

It may even occur this scenario.But, what if not?

Good risk management practices point to the interest and convenience of having a plan B. Prepared to be a robust and competitive alternative.

This is not what happens in Brazil. The preference is for improvisation and unfortunately associated with higher costs than planning.

Does anyone care?
