The paper is motivated by the need to provide relevant synthetic indicators, on the basis of which decision makers can evaluate and compare, the extent to which the proposed projects fall within the goals of sustainable development - economic efficiency, environmental responsibility, social solidarity, circular economy, production and responsible consumption. The case study, introduced in the paper, refers to the real and optimal thermal energy balance, made for an installation for the preparation of asphalt mixtures. The approached example took into account the perspective of multiplication and modernization of asphalt mixture preparation stations. Based on the measurements, performed “on site” and the calculations performed, the values of some indicators referring to energy performance, economic efficiency and environmental impact were obtained. The obtained indicators were aggregated in a global indicator, useful for administrative decision makers.
