Switch - To a Smarter Future
Hydro

Was the ideal electricity source

Hydropower can be always-on baseload power, or spin up almost instantly to follow rising electricity demand. With no fuel to burn and no emissions.

The few large scale projects in the future will be in China, India, Africa and other developing areas.
