Today, the dam provides over 75% of Paraguay's electric power needs, and meets nearly 25% of Brazil's electricity demands.
•Hydroelectric power plants produce over 90% of the electrical energy consumed in Brazil. They depend on river waters in adequate levels in their ponds to generate energy.
•Biomass is a clean energy source used in Brazil. It reduces environmental pollution as it uses organic garbage, agricultural remains, wood shaving or vegetal oil.
•More than 1 million people in the country works in the production of Biomass, and this energy represents 27% of Brazil's energetic matrix Antarctic-Environmental Protocol- creates a Committee for Environmental Protection for the continent, states any activity relating to mineral resources, other than scientific research, shall be prohibited.

wood is a cheap and readily available source of energy.
If the trees are replaced, wood burning can be a long-term, sustainable energy source but they are not being replaced at a sustainable rate.
Less amount of trees leads to less rainfall, which is a contributing factor to some of brazil's droughts.
Brazil is also consuming a lot of fossil fuels do to the growing automotive industry and industrialization. Non-Renewable Resources Sustainable Future •Wind power in Brazil amounts to an installed capacity of 602 MW at the end of 2009, enough to power a city about 300 thousand residences. The 36 windparks and windfarms in the country
Brazil is also the most environmentally friendly country in the International Energy Ageny (IEA) with 54 % renewable resources They have the same school system as America. 180 days of schooling.
