Energy: the value of difficult decisions

Energy: the value of difficult decisions

The risks associated with energy efficiency solutions, energy contracting, distributed generation - among others - have become very important in Brazil. For the simple fact that it is always necessary to compare a solution under study with the current one.

But what price reference use to evaluate the interest and convenience of accepting a new solution? The question seems obvious but it is not, and by far! Energy tariffs and prices, considering the whole range of alternatives have a "life of their own" in Brazil and their variation is beyond the control of who is contemplating their possibilities.

So the first step is to recognize the complexity involved. Those who take the initiative to treat the energy as a difficult challenge will probably require depth of analysis and finally have a better picture of the alternatives available to make well informed decisions.
