Hydropower Accounts for 1.3% of Greenhouse Gases Globally

Climate Central: Greenhouse Gases From Reservoirs Fuel Climate Change Hydropower reservoirs are considered to be major sources of low-carbon electricity that can be used to cut greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change. But those same reservoirs emit global warming gases, and a team of researchers has now tallied just how much those gases impact the climate. Globally, reservoirs are responsible for about 1.
