Solar could replace all US hydro dams using ‘just 13% of the space’

According to a new study banks of solar panels would be able to replace every electricity-producing dam in the US using just 13% of the space.

The researchers say this “surprisingly modest” figure provides a “tantalising” vision of what could be achieved if the nation phased out a power source that, while renewable, takes a significant toll on ecosystems.
