Pumped storage hydropower stands out as an established technology, but limited information is available about greenhouse gas emissions associated with its use.
The question of whether China and the western U.S. should continue investing in and advancing hydropower amid increasing climate change challenges remains.
Evaluating the Efficiency of Hydropower as an Alternative Energy Source and its Effects on the Ecosystem
Generation of hydropower, a renewable source of energy, is not a difficult feat, however, making the generation process efficient and cost effective is the real challenge.
Renewable power is right at our fingertips. With the help of new technology, water bodies like oceans, lakes and rivers can provide a substantial amount of clean electricity.
The researchers estimate that adding floating solar panels to bodies of water that are already home to hydropower stations could produce as much as 7.6 terawatts of potential power a year from the solar PV systems alone.
Hydropower may become less costly as startups are beginning to use pre-existing facilities and discontinue dam building. Thus, construction costs would be minimal and engineers could implement hydropower on a much larger scale.
Innovation is inevitable, and technologies, digital or not, will progress as time goes on because it has too. Sustainable clean energy sources are vital to the future of our planet and with a little bit of commitment to innovation, we can get there sooner than we think.
Nine Will Advance to Incubation Stage with Help from National Labs in Competition Designed to Accelerate Commissioning Times for Pumped-Storage Hydropower
Stephen Smiley and Caroline Winter for ABC AU: Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).
Alexander C. Kaufman for Huffington Post: The first-of-its-kind project could be a model for states like Washington and Oregon, and countries like Brazil, that depend heavily on hydroelectricity.
The installed 840 floating PV panels have a total peak capacity of 220 kilowatts and is expected to generate 332 megawatts per hour in its first year - equivalent to the annual consumption of around 100 homes.
