Demand for electricity with a lower carbon footprint has meant, for some, to rely heavily on hydropower. I have heard, however, of some community energy organizations aiming to get out from under hydropower and move solely to meeting demand with solar & wind power + storage. I've heard some talk about hydropower as a not completely clean energy resource, which I'm not sure I understand. However, as long as it is more reliable than solar and wind during power demand surges, then my guess is that it will continue to be a central power source.
