Do you need hydropower for clean energy?

The US has set a goal to achieve net zero greenhouse emissions by 2050. Nearly 40% of all carbon dioxide emissions come from fossil fuel power plants to create the energy we use every day.  Could hydropower be leveraged to support a clean energy transition?

In this recorded Climate Changes: Hydropower webinar, hydropower experts from RTI, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) discuss how hydropower is often overlooked as a low carbon, renewable energy source.

Watch the free on-demand webinar to learn about:

  • How hydropower complements other renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy;
  • Challenges bringing pumped storage hydropower plants online, and how recent federal incentives can help alleviate these challenges;
  • The strategies available to produce more power with existing hydropower assets;
  • Considerations and competing interests that may affect how hydropower is used.

This webinar is part of the Climate Changes webinar series, which brings together a global network of experts and researchers to contribute to climate change solutions. Learn more about the RTI Center for Climate Solutions.
