What are the disadvantages and limitations of producing hydel electricity using dams?

Swati Kumari Accepted Answer Pending Moderation

The dams can be constructed only in a limited number of places,preferably in hilly terrains. Large areas of agricultural land and human habitation are to be sacrificed as they get submerged. Large eco-systems

are destroyed when submerged under the water in dams. The vegetation which is submerged rots under anaerobic conditions and gives rise to large amounts of methane which is also a green-house gas. It creates


the problem of satisfactory rehabilitation of displaced people.
