Electrical sector: how to improve?
The average daily demand for national electricity consumption in Brazil is about 80% of the maximum demand verified each day.
The generation capacity installed in the country is approximately twice the maximum demand.
It is equivalent to saying that the installed generation capacity is used in 40% to produce energy ..
The capacity cost is 100! The actual use is 40%.
The official stimulus (subsidies) is for intermittent sources, notably solar, which produces about 20% of its installed capacity. Therefore, the "public grid must make it for the difference.
In other words, Brazil is increasing its idle capacity!
We need to adopt a strategy to REDUCE idleness and accordingly the actual capacity cost,. Brazilian power costs are the highest among the BRICS)..
