As the world grows we struggle to meet our energy demands while trying to limit the greenhouse gas emissions. We must be responsible in exploring the most rational options for meeting the energy needs. Hydroelectric power is a responsible source for clean renewable energy. The inherent economic, technical, and environmental benefits of hydroelectric power make it an important contributor in meeting the upcoming energy demands in the world. The purpose of this study is to investigate the technical and geographical aspects of Louisiana and determine if hydroelectric energy can be improved.
