Charitha commented on Hydro power

Agree with Anne on the matter of heavy social and environmental impact of large scale hydro projects. Micro and pico hydro projects on the other are of lesser environmental impact but of less economic viability. The cost of generation is much higher in a small hydro plant compared to a large hydro plant.

One of the options is to consider community managed micro/ pico hydro solutions that is being implemented in some countries. Below is a link to a report coming from Kenya.

Charitha commented on the LEED Dynamic Plaque

This is an excellent innovation. Being a LEED AP, I'm very excited to learn about this. But my question is how applicable is this outside of US where benchmarking tools such as ENERGY STAR is not applicable?
