In relation to the article "Coal goes out, but diesel comes in: the paradox that accompanies the expected exit of the Bocamina II power plant", published in DF, it is important not to forget that while the country is moving towards the decarbonization of our energy matrix, various industry players have contributed to ensure the electricity supply to enable this transformation of the system.
The closure of coal-fired power plants has been possible without interruptions in service, which has required an important effort, in terms of operations and logistics, from the generating companies and other system operators. Without this work, it would not have been possible to meet this challenge.
The attribute of flexibility will be increasingly relevant for all generation technologies and for the safe operation of the system, and its development and innovation will depend on the existence of a stable regulatory scenario and the design of adequate incentives for the installation of energy storage.
