Hydropower dams and social impacts: a sociological perspective (English) Abstract. Why is the construction of hydropower dams, which generate energy that is renewable and cleaner than oil, coal, or nuclear power, increasingly attacked in the press and assaulted by many critics.

The answer, a good part of it, is that the environmental Cited by: The Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol (HSAP) is a tool for assessing projects across a range of social, environmental, technical and economic criteria.

The first hydropower plant was built on the Fox River in Appleton, Wisconsin, in Today, there are more than 2, dams in the United States that make electricity. Hydropower is a clean source of energy.

No fuel is burned, so the air is not polluted. It is the cheapest source of. The Energy Department’s Hydropower Water Infrastructure–Information for Sustainable Energy (HydroWISE) website is a new portal for hydropower R&D. June 5, Navigate the Hydropower Permitting Process with the RAPID Toolkit.

Hydroelectric power generation is one of many ways in which electricity can be generated. Inthe three most heavily used sources for generating electricity were coal, natural gas and oil. Hydropower generation is prevalent in the West, where rapidly flowing river systems have been tapped for generations to produce electricity.

Hydropower is a clean, steady and reliable energy source, but the damming of rivers has exacted a toll on the environment, affecting, among other things, the migration of fish to vestigial spawning grounds. Local benefit sharing in hydropower projects can be defined as the systematic efforts by project proponents to sustainably benefit local communities affected by hydropower investments.

Benefit sharing is a promising approach for implementing hydropower projects sustainably, and is emerging asFile Size: 1MB. long experience in Hydropower development both in Norway and internationally.

ecological, social, and economic concerns. Whereas conventional hydropower is characterized by a centralized approach to project planning and large environmental footprint, EcoSmartHydro® Power is distrib-uted, low-impact, yet still successful at the utility scale. Conventional hydropower plants are designed solely to maximize power output.

This study recommends ways to improve the design and processing of ADB-funded hydropower projects to minimize adverse environmental and social impacts. Case studies of hydropower projects in Malaysia, Indonesia, People's Republic of China, and Lao People's Democratic Republic were assessed for the accuracy of identifying potential impacts.

U.S. hydropower generation fleet included 2, active power plants with a total capacity of GW and 42 pumped storage hydropower (PSH) plants totaling GW, for a total installed capacity of GW.

PSH com-prised the majority (97%) of the utility-scale electricity storage in the United States at the end of Analysis Overview. Environmental and social impact assessments examine the social and environmental consequences of a project prior to execution and provide information to decision makers and the public about the environmental implications of proposed actions before decisions are made.

The top hydroelectric generating states are Washington, Oregon, California, and New York, followed by Alabama, Tennessee, Montana, and Idaho. Regionally, the Northwest has the largest share of U.S. This is the reason why we listed it among the best books on renewable energy.

CHECK LATEST PRICE. Conclusion on Renewable Energy Books. Renewable energy is a hot topic in the current scenario, as we are striving to meet our ever-growing energy needs. Books like these can help us to reach a decision, which may serve as a turning point.

Thus, through hydropower, the energy sector is at the heart of the decline of freshwater ecosystems and species. Fossil fuels—from extraction through combustion— contribute to Author: Jeff Opperman.

Conventional hydropower has made huge contributions to the U.S. energy landscape, and there is a suite of new and advanced hydropower technologies that produce electricity in diverse ways. The National Hydropower Association promotes hydropower in all of its forms and supports legislative, regulatory and other policies to ensure the full range.

So just how do we get electricity from water. Actually, hydroelectric and coal-fired power plants produce electricity in a similar way. In both cases a power source is used to turn a propeller-like piece called a turbine, which then turns a metal shaft in an electric generator, which is the motor that produces electricity.

Supported by detailed case studies of real-world dam projects, including the Aswan High Dam in Egypt and the Three Gorges Dam in China, this book examines some of the major issues and impacts associated with dams and hydropower today.
