Abstract: We are living in a historical moment in the energy provisioning market. Mainly in the so-called emerging countries, Brazil is included, there is an opportunity to transfer the management and (re)organize the business to establish the current needs and commitments for the future. This level of commitment to an energy-efficient and sustainable model depends on a number of arrangements, such as the adequacy of generation and delivery, understanding customers' needs and also socio-cultural measurements built to motivate conscious use. These needs should be supported by vigorous and modern regulation and legislation, enabling not only profitability but also generating mechanisms for monitoring and evolving the electric grid, and thus, the quality of use. The objectives of this research are to organize possible future scenarios for the electric power with smart grid in Brazil as a study case. This will shed more light on the regional diversity of consumer behavior, including considerations about the current Brazilian electricity market arrangement as well as energetic matrix, the climate influence and local resource conditions, the transmission and distribution grids, and even on the extension of customer participation in the process (as a conscious consumer to co-generator). We summarize the actions and decisions expected from the standpoint of regulatory and legislative departments, as well as businesses and the electricity supply industry. The paper ends with the presentation of initial regulatory actions that are being discussed in the country concerning the measurement and quality of electric power monitoring. Additionally, some models are proposed as market segmentation to involve Brazilian consumers, based on their form of current consumption as future decision makers.
