Hydropower energy is not an alien term to us. Scientists all over the world are researching on the substitute sources of energy, which can be inexpensive and at the same time eco-friendly for our environment.
After long time of research they have found this energy as a substitute for fossil fuel. The composition of hydropower energy does not emit any harmful gases such as carbon dioxide, which makes the environment clean and this form of energy is cheap as compared to other fossil fuels.
It’s simple to know how the working mechanism of hydropower renewable energy is done. Firstly the water is gathered in a reservoir using the help of dams.
Then by using huge turbines the water from the reservoirs’ is allowed through a tunnel on the turbines.
The pressure of the water from the reservoirs’ is so immense that it pushes forward the turbines which finally result’s in generating of electricity.
However there are some problems of using the hydroelectricity. Some people claim that due to the very high pressure of water, the fish and the aquatic plants die during the process of generating electricity.
However there are many solutions to this problem and mainly the energy produced from these plants do not make any sort of waste material or pollution which is better than producing energy from coal fired plants. The Hoover facility in the United States of America is the best example of successful hydro-power plant.
For building a hydropower project a huge investment is required as a lot of land is needed in order to build facilities such as dam and storage reservoir. Nowadays, building a small hydropower plants is a new trend, which requires less money. The best way of producing electricity is by using the hydropower renewable energy which also helps in protecting our environment.
By using the hydropower energy we can generate electricity without releasing harmful gases in the atmosphere. If this type of energy is used in sensibly way, it can be very helpful for our environment.
Since there is rapid growth in global population and industrialization and if this continues in future trend it’s hardly impossible to meet the mankind’s need .so one should use/safeguard these forms of energy’s in a appropriate manner so as to meet the basic needs of mankind in the future life.
