Power in Brazil: what's the future?

Multi billion dollar default

Buyers and sellers of energy perceive the institutional fragility of the Brazilian model, which makes long-term decisions very difficult, due to the lack of predictability

Poor leadership 

For years, the leaders of the Legislative, Judiciary and Executive regarding the electric sector, have not been able to identify weaknesses, map alternatives and more importantly "make happen"

No sense of urgency

Power tariffs and prices should exist in an environment of financial liquidity and consistent physical supply

Lack of competitiveness 

It is no coincidence that Brazil is in the last place in the competitive parity (USD/MWh) for years in a row, with respect to the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, China, India and South Africa)

Apathetic institutions

The regulator, the power clearinghouse, the system operator, the ministry of mines and energy, the energy research firm - all official institutions have no drive to make the sector what it should be.

What needs to happen for a much needed, urgent turnaround?
