The Hidden Cost of HydroPower

Renewable Energy No Comments »

Please show some love and like&share this video 🙂

In the age of the Climate Crisis, hydro-electric power plants are a great source of clean energy and financial benefits. This is particularly true in developing areas which lack natural resources. As these facilities expand at an ever larger scale their externalities are becoming more and more visible.

Hydroelectric power, also known as hydropower, is a form of renewable energy that utilizes the gravitational force of flowing or falling water to generate electricity. It is one of the oldest and most widely used sources of renewable energy.

Hydroelectric power is a clean and renewable energy source because water is continually replenished by natural processes, such as rainfall and snowmelt. It is a reliable source of electricity, providing a constant and predictable power supply.

Additionally, hydroelectric power plants produce no direct greenhouse gas emissions during operation, making them an environmentally friendly option for meeting electricity demand. However, the construction of large dams and reservoirs can have significant environmental and social impacts, and smaller-scale run-of-river or micro-hydropower systems are alternative options that minimize these impacts.

The Hidden Truth Behind Sweden's Waste Disposal Infrastructure

To Burn or Not to Burn: In Sweden, waste incineration plants convert excess and non-recycled rubbish into energy. The Swedish government classifies this process as recycling, but is this form of waste disposal really sustainable?

At a waste incineration plant in Västerås, Sweden, sixty tonnes of waste are burnt every hour, converting it into energy for electricity and hot water. Sweden has 34 waste-to-energy furnaces and the country makes over 0 million a year importing and burning waste from other countries. “We see it as a kind of recycling”, says Jocke Hook, who works at the Västerås plant. Yet much of the waste burnt is plastic and, as Professor Goran Finnveden explains, “if you incinerate plastic you get carbon dioxide emissions”. Indeed Joan-Marc Simon of Zero Waste Europe believes that the number of incinerators will soon fall. “We’re going to see incinerators closing down in Europe because they’re going to have less waste to burn and recycling is going to go up.”
