While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    TRACKING HYDRO GROWTH

    Hydropower Growth…

    Evan Musolino, February 12, 2013 (Worldwatch Institute)

    “…[The market for hydropower] electricity generation is increasing…[It is] not subject to the variability that plagues wind and solar energy…[so its] greater reliability can…be harnessed to provide baseload power…

    “Global consumption and installed capacity of hydropower continued to increase in 2011, reaching 3,498 terawatt-hours (TWh) and 970 gigawatts (GW) respectively…”

    “Total consumption has now increased each year between 2003 and 2011…[though] in 2011 the growth rate slowed, registering only a 1.6 percent increase from the previous year…Among members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, hydroelectricity accounted for 5.7 percent of primary energy consumption…

    “…It played a more important role in [non-OECD] countries, at 7.1 percent of usage, and these nations accounted for 60.2 percent of worldwide hydroelectricity consumption…On a regional basis, South America and Central America are most dependent on hydroelectricity relative to total energy use…”
