Hydropower Plants


Hydropower Plants

Worldwide increases in energy demand, growing fossil fuel consumption, and environmental problems associated with burning fossil fuels give new impetus to the production of hydroelectric power and the use of renewable energy resources as an environmentally friendly form of power generation.

Dams are constructed for irrigation and drinking water purposes, power generation, and flood retention schemes.

River interventions are determined by the intended purpose, the possible construction options, the ecological conditions, and the economic efficiency.
