Water Power: the Micro-Hydro Revolution
This Catalyst article is about a micro-hydroelectric power station on a river in Yorkshire. As oil prices soar and global warming threatens, the need for affordable green solutions to the energy crisis is ever increasing. Giant hydroelectric power stations, such as the Three Gorges Dam in China, will help to fulfil this necessity. However, with the benefits of large scale hydro power not so clear cut some people are turning back to basics; and there is a new mini-revolution in micro-hydro. This article describes one small scale project.
