It will become one of the largest integrated power systems in the world. In this paper the present state of power system in China, its future development in two stages are presented.

And while water is a renewable resource, rivers and the ecosystems that they sustain – including floodplains, wetlands, estuaries and marine environments – are not. Given the serious, irreversible ecological impacts of dams, dam-based hydropower cannot be considered a renewable source of power.

For this reason they are less disruptive to the natural state of a river. Some systems may have a small pond or partial dam at the inlet, but strictly speaking a run-or-river leaves the river intact.
