  and Rafael Macêdo

Nuclear energy generation does not directly emit greenhouse effect (GHE) gases. The evaluation of direct impact was made considering that it is inserted in the thermal complementation necessary for the Brazilian electric system. Options regarding the indirect emissions calculations are presented.

Program Description:

The bal_eec Program – User’s Manual

Contained Carbon, Equivalent and Final Energy

The utilization of the bal_eec program is described. It is a computer program that generates spreadsheets and graphics of carbon balance, equivalent and final energy as well as greenhouse effect gases emissions.

Auctions of New Energy:

Vectors of Offer and    Demand Crisis or Adjustment         

   Nivalde J. de Castro and Daniel Bueno

The situation before the new energy auctions scheduled for July 2007 is analyzed. Data regarding offer of undertakings for these two next auctions indicated predominance of non renewable thermal plants that emit greenhouse effect gases and with higher tariffs. The auctions’ profile reflects the environmental legislation that has not yet been assimilated by society as well as the delay concerning the hydroelectric potential of the hydrological basins.
