Hydropower: Avenues for Sustainable Development
In the electric power industry, a key aspect of meeting the criteria for sustainable development is the maximum conservation of primary nonrenewable energy sources while meeting the energy needs of the modern economy and society as well as minimizing the environmental impact throughout the entire chain of the cycle of electricity production. Given the growing global economic problems, air pollution, global warming, and climate change, the production of electricity using renewable sources is considered to be the [type of production] that best meets the listed requirements. Major HPPs are among the most significant factors in controlling climate change. In particular, according to the International Energy Agency, greenhouse gas emissions would be 11% higher without existing hydropower stations, which is comparable to emissions from road transport throughout the world
