Reclassify Hydropower Now – As Renewable Energy

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Cal Matters.

It is written by a politician and details the mess California seems to be in over energy policy.

In the UK and Europe in general, hydro-electric power is generally considered to be renewable.

But not always in California, where environmentalists are against dams. So in the last heatwave, California was importing hydropower from places like the Hoover Dam.

We must get our policies and definitions right on what is and what isn’t renewable energy.
