Norway is one of the top-ten hydropower electricity producers worldwide, with more than 95 percent of domestic power production from hydropower. A new tool developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) enables policymakers and industry to understand the tradeoffs between hydropower and loss of land and biodiversity from when lands are drowned under reservoirs.
Hydropower is the world's top provider of renewable energy, producing a whopping 16 per cent of the global energy supply. That's a good thing when it comes to the climate, especially compared to energy from fossil fuels. But hydropower is not without its environmental costs, particularly when it comes to the
