ut the question remains, is it sensible to ignore the possibility of renewable power sources in places where the requisite geographical features are present?

Nobody’s doing that, to my knowledge. Where we have those geographical features in the States, we use them. Hoover Dam has been producing hydroelectric since the 30’s, and the Robert Moses system around Niagara Falls for about the same amount of time.
