Published in Opinion Sections of Brazilian Newspapers

Since 2014, Prof. Alexandre Street has been publishing opinion pieces concerning the Brazilian electrical power sector. He, as well as LAMPS in general, believes that the constant exchange between industry and academia is crucial to a solid and efficient electrical system, one that is capable of adapting to ever-changing reality. The projects our lab traditionally develops reflect this belief. Bringing his opinion, formed over years of experience in developing state-of-the-art research for the power sector, is one of various ways by which Alexandre Street, coordinator and one of the creators of LAMPS, seeks to impact reality and collaborate with the development of Brazilian society.

It is worth mentioning that the following articles were published on Brazilian high-circulation periodicals and are available only in Portuguese.
