The Role of Hydropower in a Clean Energy Economy

Featured topics Published   10/20/2020

The Hydropower Reform Coalition is committed to fighting climate change, and to doing so in a way that prioritizes and increases the resilience of ecosystems and local communities. Hydropower has a place in a 100% clean energy economy, but that place must be carefully determined to both ensure that hydropower assets accelerate climate change mitigation and to minimize the worst impacts from this energy source.

We believe the principles outlined in this document will avoid the worst impacts of hydropower and help to ensure that hydropower’s inclusion in a future clean energy economy is truly clean and sustainable.
