No mundo de ponta as tarifas de uso horário, associadas à programas de resposta à demanda trazem resultados importantes para o setor residencial.

Nos Estados Unidos por exemplo, dezenas de milhões de residencias incorporaram tecnologias corriqueiras para reduzir custos da conta de luz.

No Brasil estamos ainda patinando com as travessuras de nossos dirigentes que nem conseguem que as regras por eles criadas, sejam respeitadas. Exemplo emblemático é a Judicialização interminável, cujo resultado é a manutenção do nosso status de perdedor em relação aos BRICS – em custo por kWh.

Enquanto no mundo prosperam atividades do tipo ganha-ganha, no Brasil ficamos com as discussões etéreas, prolixas, sem fim e sobretudo altamente custosas, que nos colocam irremediavelmente na rabeira do mercado.

O ator principal no filme O Voilinista no Telhado, canta “if I were a rich man” (se eu fosse um homem rico). Há um trecho muito interessante e que serve para ilustrar nossa situação : “não é nehuma vergonha em ser pobre mas não é exatamente uma honra”.


Energy: if Brazil were rich…

In the cutting-edge world, time of use rates coupled with demand-response programs are bringing excellent results now to the residential sector as well.

In the United States, for example, tens of millions of homes have already incorporated everyday technologies to take advantage of new opportunities to reduce their power bills.

In Brazil we are still dealing with the mischief of our official leaders who can not even set up regulations that “fly”. There is an endless Judiciary battle. The result is the maintenance of our loser status – in terms of the power cost in USD per MWh.

While win-win activities are flourishing in the world, in Brazil we are left with the ethereal, prolix and above all, highly costly and never ending discussions, which put us irremediably as losers in the world competition (notably with respect to the BRICS).

The main actor in the film The Fiddler on the Roof, sings “if I were a rich man”. There is a very interesting line which serves as a consolation, when Tevye describes the situation: “it is not a shame to be poor but it is not a great honor either”.
