Moving water makes Hydropower!đź’§

How it works

Hydropower generates in the USA about 9% of total energy supply. Hydropower uses the Earths water cycle to genorate electricity because,movement of water as it flows downstream creates kinetic energy that can be then converted into electricity.

Some facts about hydropower!

1. Hydropower today provides about 20% of the worlds electricity and its main energy source for more than 30 countries.

2.Hydroelectric energy is renewable. This means that we cannot use up. However, there’s only a limited number of suitable reservoirs where hydroelectric power plants can be built and even less places where such projects are profitable.

3.Hydroelectricity is very reliable energy. There are very little fluctuations in terms of the electric power that is being by the plants, unless a different output is desired. Countries that have large resources of hydropower use hydroelectricity as a base load energy source. As long as there is water in the magazines electricity can be generated.
