Energy planning for more conscious consumption

In view of the critical moment in relation to energy generation in the country, the implementation of clean and sustainable alternatives is increasingly necessary. The debate that until then only occurred in certain groups in society, now invades other fields. The market, driven by the community and industries that suffer with the high rates and penalties of energy restrictions in Brazil, asks for real and functional measures. And, along with this, technology presents ways to enable actions that were little attended to until now, but that can positively transform the scenario for everyone.

If on one hand the whole world needed to relearn how to place itself, with the energy crisis, the biggest in Brazil in 90 years, it is essential to plan and manage its consumption in a strategic way. Not even blackouts are ruled out, as has been reported by the main communication portals in the country.

The National Meteorology System (SNM) itself issued a water emergency alert in the first half of the year, reporting the difficulties of the current period. However, the measures suggested as a matter of urgency have not been sufficient to overcome this shortage. And there are not many guarantees that the hydroelectric plants will remain active, such is the risk of lack of supply.

Energy consumption: data and scenario of the Brazilian energy matrix

In terms of production, Brazil is a very rich country in terms of renewable, fossil and nuclear energy resources.

According to the National Energy Balance (BEN) 2021, practically half of Brazil's energy matrix, which corresponds to 48.4%, comes from renewable sources. The amount is divided into 19.1% coming from sugarcane biomass, 12.6% from hydroelectric power, and 8.9% from firewood and charcoal.

Wind, solar and biogas account for the remainder indicated as "others", equivalent to 7.7% of this matrix. Therefore, it is clear how important it is that there are distinct sources, because it is beneficial to the balance of the whole, since it aims to supply the load of the system.

The country itself foresees, through its policies, the use of renewable energy, the efficient use of energy, the diversification of the energy matrix, and the preservation of the environment. In the same way that it pays attention to microgeneration and distributed generation, in order to stimulate the generation of energy from renewable sources.

In other words, there are alternatives and norms that provide a basis for the exploration of energy from renewable sources. This suggests, then, that a planning that assists the energy sectors and large consumers with regard to an energy efficiency project is fundamental. The measure would ensure greater electrical safety, in addition to balancing the system.

Awareness for a sustainable attitude

When it comes to energy generation, the subject is quite broad. Besides the need to raise awareness among consumers and industry, it is also necessary to think about investors. Because their position directly impacts the behavior of this market. Thus, it is extremely necessary to plan actions in a strategic way by the sector, so that the country becomes more competitive in the international economic scenario and has the needs of the population in general met.

Industry is responsible for 41% of Brazil's energy consumption, according to the National Confederation of Industries (CNI). Thus, planning is essential. It is necessary to consider future energy needs and how the country can meet them After all, we need energy to produce food, clothes, equipment, computers, cell phones, and many other things. In order to have a good energy planning it is necessary to guarantee that it generates economy and thinks, in fact, about sustainability.

In this sense, technological solutions have presented themselves as allies to this impasse. The most diverse industrial business segments need these alternatives, and counting on initiatives that actually offer this is a light for everyone who has been suffering from the "inaccuracies" of the current moment.

Pressure Reducing Turbine, an alternative

The Pressure Reducing Turbine (PRT) is one of the solutions that meet this industrial need. The TRP's proposal is to replace reducing valves with microgeneration turbines. Thus, they lower the pressure and use what would be wasted to generate even more energy. In other words, what was previously wasted is reused. With the technology it is possible, therefore, to save 10% to 20% of the expenses with electric energy.

Thus, in addition to reducing about 20% of the costs of the initiatives with electric energy, energy efficiency is increased, so that the environmental impact is much lower. An innovative project that walks with the purposes of development and sustainability, advocated by Prosumir.

The renewable energy generation and cogeneration company, which seeks through technology to bring efficient energy solutions to industries.
