use hydroelectric in a sentence.
My workstation runs off a hydroelectric power grid.
Actually, hydroelectric plant failures can cause 100+ kilodeaths.
Am I right in thinking that your figure is for inland hydroelectric power plants, not Tidal power generators?
That's mostly because we have the opportunity to run hydroelectric plants very easily, with all our mountains and water.
Germany has a plan to use Norway as a huge energy store, adding pumping capacity to the hydroelectric plants.
Same thing for hydroelectric plants.
Using solar, wind, hydroelectric and future fusion reactors, yes, it is.
Could wind farms have local pumped water storage work available (eg for water towers) or dedicated lines to pumped hydroelectric stations so that the power output could be chosen and excess power diverted to pumping water for later use (use for power gen' or water transport).
Some people do, not by living in perpetually windy environments but by reducing consumption and using stored energy supply (eg batteries but pumping water to provide hydroelectric which can be used at any time is also a possibility).
That is definitely an interesting point, although I assume it was taken into account when companies and the government did their comparison with hydroelectric storage.
Seems like unless your power is hydroelectric, wind, or solar, generating the electricity to make and blast 30 seconds of steam for a cup of coffee may produce more undesirable byproducts than a paper cup.
