The Santo Antônio Hydroelectric Plant is the first large plant to be built in Brazil in almost three decades – it will be one of the largest in the country in energy generation. In spite of – and precisely because of – its location in midst of the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest, it is an example that energy can de generated sustainably. In addition to the innovative aspects of the activities implemented and results obtained, the importance of this power plant lies in the fact that all activities are economically viable and replicable, creating new perspectives in renewable energy generation with sustainable water management in the Amazon.

The Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol (‘The Protocol’) is a framework for assessing the sustainability of hydropower projects. It promotes the continuous improvement of hydropower sustainability performance, and provides a common language for shared dialogue on over 20 sustainability topics. The Protocol was developed between 2008 and 2010 by a multi-stakeholder forum of project developers and operators, regulators, non-governmental organisations, investors and international agencies. This Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Forum worked intensively over the course of 2008 to 2010 to develop the content of the Protocol. Forum members included Transparency International, Oxfam, WWF, The Nature Conservancy and a range of financial institutions and development banks.
