Hydro Energy

This is the oldest of the approaches and the one that contributes the most of all renewables to current electricity supply. It basically converts the potential energy of a body of water into mechanical power and then to electrical power.

Interest in Hydro energy has been renewed in recent years as a result of the new UK and EU targets for reduction of Carbon emission and also the introduction of incentives like Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs) and Feed-In Tariff scheme (FITs).
