To achieve that visibility, or situational awareness, a utility has to know the location of dispatched employees, not just the assigned crews, but also non-traditional employees (e.g., damage assessors) and external resources such as mutual-aid crews. What an important point, especially if those non-assigned crews are a bit unexpected because of changing circumstances! How long of...
Good question and one that doesn’t have a standard answer. There are solutions in the market that can adjust real-time while others require phone calls or emails. The real-time updates occur when the resources, no matter the type (traditional or non-traditional) are being tracked via GPS systems that provide driving directions as well as ETA. In these systems as soon as the crew is...
Generation projects will be more expensive in Reais because most of them depend on imports. Fuel-dependent plants have their variable costs linked to the Dollar and will also have leveraged costs. Do you think this will be a boost to renewable energy projects that don't have such fuel import reliances?
Hi Matt, hydro power projects are entrirely "made in Brazil" but these days reservoirs are considered a "crime" so it became expensive (very volatile given the rain regime) but solar for example depends (highly) on imports (film). And financial resources - mostr probably - depend on har currency as well. So it is a very tricky situation!
Interesting. Understood that the PV materials need to be imported, but I would think that at least with those being a one time (or, more accurately, once every 20ish year) cost and fuel 'free' that it would be able to tip the scales. But those markets are indeed pretty tricky these days too, I suppose
