China's Three Gorges sets new bar for annual hydroelectric power production
China's 22,500 MW Three Gorges project has again broken the world record for annual hydroelectric power production, besting a mark set in 2013 by Brazil's Itaipu. The plant — located on the Yangtze River — generated 98.8 billion TWh through the end of 2014. China Three Gorges Corporation said the hydropower project's output is roughly equivalent to burning 29 million metric tons of coal, eliminating 100 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
