Energía limpia

Las montañas son una rica fuente de energía renovable. Algunos países como Bután están exportando energía hidroeléctrica como materia prima. Ruanda se ha propuesto generar 1000 megavatios de energía para uso domestico y exportación en 2017.

Esta gran energía potencial sin explotar significa que las montañas tienen el poder de ayudar a desplazar el consumo mundial lejos de los combustibles fósiles que son la mayor causa del calentamiento global.

La creciente urbanización y la expansión de las mega-ciudades incrementa la demanda de las regiones de llanura, que miran a las montañas en busca de mayor provisión de energía. Las montañas son una fuente clave de energía para toda la población del planeta.
