Merowe Dam in Sudan. Hydroelectric power stations that use dams submerge large areas of land due to the requirement of a reservoir. These changes to land color or albedo, alongside certain projects that concurrently submerge rainforests, can in these specific cases result in the global warming impact, or equivalent life-cycle greenhouse gases of hydroelectricity projects, to potentially exceed that of coal power stations.

Hydroelectricity, or hydroelectric power, is electricity produced from hydropower.

- Hydroelectricity

Hydropower is often used in conjunction with dams to generate electricity.

- Dam

Hydropower is now used principally for hydroelectric power generation, and is also applied as one half of an energy storage system known as pumped-storage hydroelectricity.

- Hydropower

They also pioneered the use of dams as a source of water power, used to provide additional power to watermills and water-raising machines.

- Hydropower

Most hydroelectric power comes from the potential energy of dammed water driving a water turbine and generator.

- Hydroelectricity

In 1928, Congress authorized the project to build a dam that would control floods, provide irrigation water and produce hydroelectric power.
