Examining the Contradictions of Small Hydro power Plants as Sustainable Energy Sources in Brazil

Abstract: Artigo recebido em 12 de agosto de 2015, versão final aceita em 20 de abril de 2016. RESUMO:As Pequenas Centrais Hidrelétricas (PCHs) vêm ganhando destaque nos esforços voltados para a expansão da oferta de energia elétrica em âmbito mundial. Tal fato se deve à ideia de que essas plantas de geração de energia, por seu menor porte, causariam impactos ambientais insignificantes, quando comparadas com grandes usinas hidrelétricas. Em função disso, o Brasil tem flexibilizado as normas ambientais e concedido incent… Show more

“…Because of that, they are built in greater numbers along the same stretches breaking down-upstream connectivity, converting lotic environments into lentic environments over a short time interval (Gubiani, Gomes, Agostinho, & Okada, 2007). In addition, the barrages cause changes in the physical and chemical conditions of the water (Chellappa, Bueno, Chellappa, Chellappa, & Val, 2009) and the quality and quantity of habitats for aquatic fauna and flora, and can modify ecological and biological processes (Novaes, Moreira, Freire, Sousa, & Costa, 2014;Latini & Pedlowsky, 2016).…”
