What Is The Future Of Hydropower?

June 2, 2022

Hydropower is the world’s largest source of renewable energy, yet we don’t hear much about it. That’s in part because hydropower generation in the U.S. has remained relatively steady for decades. But internationally, it’s been growing rapidly, especially in China. That growth has some environmentalists concerned, as dams and reservoirs disrupt the surrounding ecosystems and can create C02 and methane emissions. Plus, hydropower generation is threatened as climate-driven droughts become increasingly common. Yet many experts say that hydropower is absolutely vital for a fossil fuel-free world and so learning how to mitigate these challenges will be critical in the decades to come.

Scientists New Energy Breakthrough That's 10X Better Than Wind & Solar!

video | July 24, 2022

he world has come around to see we need to produce energy as responsibly as possible. However, there is one major hurdle that we face when it comes to producing energy through renewable sources; intermittency! Can renewable energy be produced any time energy is needed? That is a question wind and solar power cannot answer yes to! There is, however, a breakthrough method of generating energy that neatly solves the intermittency problem that plagues wind and solar energy! This game-changing tech is tidal energy and is getting many players in the energy industry excited! What is tidal energy? How does it work? And what are the potentials? Join us...
