Abstract:

Over the years, the energy has been assuming a role that is becoming gradually more and more important in the society. The development of several fields, that impact directly in the life quality of the population, is supported by the energy and the world would probably collapse if there was a sudden absence of it. However, the energy in the quantities currently used are not easy to generate, transform and distribute. If these processes are not performed correctly, several actives would be compromised, compromising as well the quality of life. Thus, it is presented the importance of having an institution which its only goal is to promote the efficiency of all the processes related to energy, the National Agency of Electrical Energy, in the Brazilian’s case. The job performed by this institution has several fronts. However, one in particular receives more attention than the others in this work, which is the front responsible for the renewable energy sources. These sources have assumed a primordial role in the current scenario that world is passing, due to all the problems related to the environment pollution. The renewable sources can be used to substitute the carbon-based energy fuels and contribute to solve a real threatening that the world is living and that will only increase, in case some strong actions are not performed. For this reason, this work explores the usage of renewable energy sources, in this case, the distributed generation through photovoltaic systems. The objective is to make a viability analysis to help the decision making of the power distribution companies about if they should invest in this type of project or not, giving the financial incentives of the Energy Efficiency program of the ANEEL. Besides it, this work took advantage of the possibility of acting in low-income communities. Therefore, besides the possible environmental gains, the social gains were explored as well.
