Hydropower Accounts for 1.3% of Greenhouse Gases Globally

Climate Central : Greenhouse Gases From Reservoirs Fuel Climate Change Hydropower reservoirs are considered to be major sources of low-carbon electricity that can be used to cut greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change. But those same reservoirs emit global warming gases, and a team of researchers has now tallied just how much those gases impact the climate. Globally, reservoirs are responsible for about 1.3 percent of the world’s manmade greenhouse gas emissions each year, or about the same as Canada’s total emissions, according to a study to be published in the journal Bioscience next week. The findings come from a team of researchers led by Washington State University-Vancouver and the Environmental Protection Agency.
