Evaluating the Efficiency of Hydropower as an Alternative Energy Source and its Effects on the Ecosystem

Generation of hydropower, a renewable source of energy, is not a difficult feat, however, making the generation process efficient and cost effective is the real challenge.

Readers Choice 2020: New Technology Will Revolutionize Hydropower

Renewable power is right at our fingertips. With the help of new technology, water bodies like oceans, lakes and rivers can provide a substantial amount of clean electricity.

Untapped Potential Exists for Blending Hydropower, Floating PV

The researchers estimate that adding floating solar panels to bodies of water that are already home to hydropower stations could produce as much as 7.6 terawatts of potential power a year from the solar PV systems alone.

Startup Lowering Construction Costs for Hydropower Plant

Hydropower may become less costly as startups are beginning to use pre-existing facilities and discontinue dam building. Thus, construction costs would be minimal and engineers could implement hydropower on a much larger scale.

How Can We Improve Hydropower Technologies?

Innovation is inevitable, and technologies, digital or not, will progress as time goes on because it has too. Sustainable clean energy sources are vital to the future of our planet and with a little bit of commitment to innovation, we can get there sooner than we think.

Nine Will Advance to Incubation Stage with Help from National Labs in Competition Designed to Accelerate Commissioning Times for Pumped-Storage Hydropower

Pumped hydro storage 'could make Australia run on renewable energy alone within 20 years'

Stephen Smiley and Caroline Winter for ABC AU: Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).

The World's First Power Plant To Combine Hydro And Solar Opens In Portugal

Alexander C. Kaufman for Huffington Post: The first-of-its-kind project could be a model for states like Washington and Oregon, and countries like Brazil, that depend heavily on hydroelectricity.

A World Premiere - The First Hybrid FPV and Hydroelectric Dam Power Plant System

The installed 840 floating PV panels have a total peak capacity of 220 kilowatts and is expected to generate 332 megawatts per hour in its first year - equivalent to the annual consumption of around 100 homes.

What is Hydropower in a Pipe?

According to the US Geological Survey, 66% of public water comes from surface water. Presumably some of that is pumped at some point, but even if only half of that were gravity fed, the potential for electricity production from municipal water pipes is significant.

Minesto orders turbine prototype from SCHOTTEL HYDRO

The Swedish marine energy company has now placed an order for a prototype of the turbine, with delivery in early 2017.

Have you discovered SMA ShadeFix optimization?

Have you discovered SMA ShadeFix optimization?

A recent university study showed SMA ShadeFix optimization produces more energy than traditional optimizers. It also utilizes far fewer components, reducing the need for costly service visits. Systems with ShadeFix optimization and SunSpec certified shutdown devices are the ideal solution for residential and commercial PV systems.
