Yolanda Vieira de Abreu

Federal University of Tocantins, State of Tocantins, Brazil


ABSTRACT

The Energy Balance of State (BEE) allows the user either technical, scientific, deciding parties or merely the studious a rapid overview of the dynamics and transformations which the Energetic Framework has gone through these past years.  To draw up an BEE one needs a survey of the principal data regarding production, import and export and .the final consumption of different forms of energy consumption of society’s various segments. This paper purports to show the importance of this data for the construction of sustainable public policies. When drafting the Energy Accounts of Tocantins State one notices the degree of exploitation of the local energy sources and their sustainability.  The use of Wood as the main energy source demonstrates the issue of the fragile sustainability of the Legal Amazon and the difficulty in preserving its natural resources. However this issue is linked to the lack of availability of other energy sources for industry and the development of technologies adapted to the region.
