Gustavo Estrella, CEO of CPFL Energia, says in an interview in the UOL Líderes series that the world will hardly escape advancing in nuclear generation. “We see conflicts in Europe over the gas issue. I think Europe will need to invest in nuclear energy, but it is important to put this in a very pragmatic and objective way”, says the head of CPFL.
The executive defends, however, the expansion of clean and renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind.
“Today, our electricity park has 83% renewable energy. The world has, on average, 27%. We have all the conditions to maintain or even increase this number of renewable energy because they are the most competitive sources and the generation potential in Brazil is very large, whether with solar or wind, which still has a huge capacity to be explored”.
Estrella also talks about the importance of thermoelectric plants; the arrival of smart meters; the company’s investments in ESG and how to reduce the price of the energy tariff.
