Alpine rivers are not renewable

Towards a fully sustainable energy strategy in the Alps

In the context of the energy transition, Alpine states and regions are developing new energy strategies including a strong re-orientation towards renewable energies such as hydropower. Many new projects are being developed. These tend to have a focus on energy production, neglecting consequences on the Alpine landscapes and environment.
