Abstract

This article presents a methodology for the analysis of the sustainability of thermoelectric plants with a highlight on the isolated system in the Amazon, in the state of Rondônia, Brasil. The document describes the
indicators for the constructions of a general indicator of sustainability that allows the classification of micro-networks with thermoelectrics according to their environmental, social and, economic contributions. In
this study we use official data and polls made to the electric distribution companies. The model proposed in this paper contributes to the definition of policies for the control of greenhouse gases, mitigation of risks,
new technologies development and, the distribution of public resources for alternative energy sources research. This research project was developed by the Research Group on Renewable and Sustainable Energy of the Universidade Federal de Rondônia.
