Rising power prices in Brazil

In the free power market, short-term prices rose sharply. In one year more than 300%. Medium and long term ones too, but with more "moderation", around 40%.

Regulated tariffs have also gone way up.
The price signals are consistent with the situation of low reservoir (that feed the hydropower plants) levels on the supply side and a firm position on the demand side.

For those with curiosity, initiative and a leadership profile, it is high time to ask what to do in this scenario to ensure a competitive position.
