Stop building hydropower projects in the Northeast | Analysis

They don’t fill any gap; are financially unviable; lead to displacement; there’s a high risk of geological mishaps
Over the years, hydropower has been justified as being necessary to provide power at night, when demand peaks and solar energy is absent. This rationale is no longer applicable for new projects, as hydropower loses ground to hybrid solutions — a mix of solar and spare thermal capacity, for instance — that offer round-the-clock power and are priced at low, competitive rates.(AFP)
