China Has Largest Hydropower Plants In The World

interestingengineering.com
China's Second Largest Hydropower Dam Starts Generating Electricity
"The plant, which is set to be second in capacity only to the Three Gorges Dam [also in China], will consist of 16 1-gigawatt (GW) turbines, giving it the largest single-unit capacity in the world... The dam was also built in order to help meet China's climate change goals, with the country aiming for carbon neutrality by 2060..."

On the downside as I understand it when Chinese government wants to do something they just do it without consideration to farmers or other environmental concerns.

Considering our hydropower is beginning to dry up with the droughts in the west they seemed to have begun outpacing us when it comes to moving away from fossil fuels.



If the United States wishes to remain the world leader we face a steep road ahead.
