Amapá - conclusions

If there is an assessment of the never-ending blackout, it is that our electricity sector does not work as it should.

There is a consensus that the Brazilian electrical system works wonderfully on paper, but not in reality.

Anyone who has an obligation to enforce the rules, and is paid for it, was inept.

This is a serious error that has occurred. Even so no director of ANEEL (regulator), ONS (independent system operator), MME (secretary of energy), CCEE (power clearinghouse), or the local distributor will have the decency to resign.

Worse still, our "system" will also not punish these leaders or their institutions, for the gross misconducts and for the omission that harmed many people in Amapá.

A real shame.
