Abstract—The goal of this study is to characterize wind resources as a source of energy. In particular, we characterize their supply and demand on the Brazilian energy grid through the methodological tools offered by Integrated Energy Resources Planning. The study develops two energy scenarios for wind power. First, we develop a business as usual, which ponders social, economic, environmental and political aspects. Second, we develop a sustainability scenario, which evaluates the potential of wind power as a renewable resource, and its potential as an alternative to reach a sustainable development that reduces CO2 emissions. To develop both scenarios, we use estimates of supply and demand for the next 50 years, which reflect the needs and interest of those involved on the issue.

Index Terms—wind power, sustainable scenario, integrated resource planning
