Evening Program: Exporting Our Clean Energy Impacts

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 12:00 AM

All centralized energy facilities require infrastructure that have environmental impacts, even renewable sources. Building large-scale wind turbines, hydropower dams, and the associated roads and transmission lines permanently alter the landscape. In particular, renewable energy facilities can impact relatively natural areas far away from the highest energy demand, and which provide important ecological, recreational and scenic values.
