Hydro power plant
A hydropower plant is a power plant that utilizes hydropower. The total capacity of the world’s hydropower plants is about 715,000 MW, 19% of the Earth’s total electricity capacity (16% in 2003), and 63% of renewable energy in 2005.
Although large hydropower plants process the most hydropower, small hydropower plants (up to 5 MW) are also of great importance, and are particularly popular in China, where more than 50% of the world’s small hydropower capacity operates.
In our opinion, the potential of water is underused, although many places in many countries offer opportunities, including in developing countries.
