Benefits of hydroelectric power Economic benefits No fuel costs Low labor

Dams provide recreation and flood protection Systems are long-lived (decades) Provides relatively constant power Conserves fossil fuels Benefits local economies Can be implemented remotely Can prevent pollution caused by fossil fuels Current worldwide hydroelectricity output
