Proposal: new tariff modeling for the electric sector

The growing complexity of the electricity sector requires a new approach adhere it to the new challenges.

Power sources such as solar and wind (centralized and distributed formats) are increasingly important in most countries' matrixes.

Generation, transmission and distribution companies have the main cost of "invested capital", which is essentially FIXED.

But... tariff modeling favors mainly a variable cost structure, centered on the energy consumption of the end user.

My proposal is: tariffs should be essentially fixed (per kW demand) so that they reflect reality. To gain competitiveness, robustness and parity between revenues and costs of the supply and demand sides.
