Large hydroelectric plants seeking sustainability

The stiff challenge facing Latin America to ensure power supply in the coming years, amid increasing social pressure against power generation from fossil fuels, is turning attention back to hydropower projects. Constructors are increasingly choosing run-of-river plants that require smaller reservoirs in order to obtain environmental permits. However, the spread of run-of-river plants has sparked debate between specialists that support these projects because of their lesser impacts and those who think that the most vulnerable countries in terms of energy security shouldn't be building such plants.
