Table 1 Criterias adopted for the area selection

From: Spatialized potential for biomass energy production in Brazil: an overview

  Factors Criteria Goal
1 Energy demand factor (Download in March of 2015 from http://goo.gl/iMiMzO) Areas with greater demand for energy/inhabitant will have a greater need energy production Locate places with higher demand
2 Transmission lines factor (Download in March of 2015 from http://goo.gl/6vBU0n) More remote area is of a installed transmission line, greater is the need Encourage a decentralized system
3 Power plants factor (Download in March of 2015 from http://goo.gl/iMiMzO) The lower energy production density in the region, the greater is its need Generate new production areas
4 Land use factor (Download in March of 2015 from http://goo.gl/xcscy) Areas with an anthropic land use will have a greater need Conservation of native vegetation
5 Preservation factor (Download in March of 2015 from http://goo.gl/4khjso) Areas of relevance for environment preservation present less need for energy production Preservation of key areas for environmental conservation
