Rapid analysis of hydropower potential compared to wind and solar

World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)

, , XH

WWF, in cooperation with RiverWatch, Euronatur, and Geota, recently published the first ever inventory of hydropower plants in Europe. The study shows rivers to be saturated with hydropower dams and thousands more planned, greatly harming freshwater ecosystems.

As a result, WWF is looking to assess the potential for solar and wind energy production in Europe, and comparing that with both the potential from planned or possible future hydropower and with future electricity demand under a scenario reaching climate neutrality (see attached full job description).
