The Energy Sector

According to CEMIG (2017), one of the main concerns of countries that wish to be recognized for their high capacity is the diversification of energy sources, in particular, the generation of electricity. CEMIG is an important player in Energy Sector in Brazil.

The businesses requirements that are relevant to the industry, can be considered as major responsible for the maturity in the energy industry, are delimited:

  • Capability of investment planning based on market growth;

  • The allocation of resources for the provision of infrastructure projects;

  • The importance of investment in renewable energies;

  • Understand the business life cycle considering generation, transmission and distribution;

  • The level of compliance with public and market policies.

Besides these important drivers mentioned above, we can highlight the growth in the use of renewable energies. Being regenerative with time, having long cycles of use, paying attention to the maintenance of the means of capture and not to the inexhaustible source of resources:

  • Hydro energy

  • Solar energy

  • Wind Energy

  • Biomass

  • Solid fuels

  • Liquid fuels

  • Gaseous fuels

  • Geothermal energy

  • Tidal Power

In this context, the greater the maturity in the management of structural projects of the sector, the more prepared will be the organization for the use of these energies. The presence of energy sufficiency is not celebrated as a strategic differential for governments or institutions, but its lack turns it into a relentless delimiter for the growth necessary for the market to remain.
