Renewable Energy: Myths and Obstacles
Sustainable Energy Development and Hydropower Rehabilitation
Jean-François Lefebvre, Nicole Moreau, Jonathan Théorêt
Oil production has peaked. The climate is askew. We are in a race to make the inevitable transition to renewable energies and energy conservation. But numerous obstacles stand in the way of important and necessary energy developments. Opposition to hydropower projects is now spilling over onto wind and solar projects. By redeeming hydropower and telling the truth about the potential and limitations of other renewables, the authors dispel myths and identify obstacles to the implementation of a truly sustainable energy strategy.
