Transcript of Hydroelectricity

Hydroelectric power is the term referring to electricity generated by hydro power; The production of electrical power through the use of gravitational force of falling or flowing water. Hydro electric power is also the most widely known source of renewable energy.

-Hydro electric power is produced in 150 other countries around the globe

-The Asia pacific region is generating 32 of the global hydro power in 2010.

What is hydroelectric power ?

Where is this power found?
The Pros and Cons of Hydroelectric power
This power can be found anywhere water is moving
Examples: Waterfalls, streams, river, etc.
And faster moving water has more energy and generates more power
Waterfalls also generate lots of energy
Oh, Yeah, did I mention 24% of the world uses Hydroelectricity
China has a dam, the "Three Gorges Dam", that generates 20, 300 Mega Watts

Pros
Fuel is not burned so there is minimal pollution
Water to run the power plant is provided free by nature
Hydro power plays a major role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Relatively low operations and maintenance costs
The technology is reliable and proven over time
It's renewable - rainfall renews the water in the reservoir, so the fuel is almost always there
renewable
green
reliable
flexible
safe

Cons
Environmental Consequences
Expensive
Drought
limited reservoir
blocks fish passage

Hydro power is the most important and widely-used renewable source of energy.
Hydro power represents 19% of total electricity production.
China is the largest producer of hydroelectricity, followed by Canada, Brazil, and the United States).
Approximately two-thirds of the economically feasible potential remains to be developed. Untapped hydro resources are still abundant in Latin America, Central Africa, India and China

who uses hydroelectric power:
(mtoe means: million tonnes of oil equivalent)
Top Consumers:

- China 163.1 mtoe (67 percent)
- Brazil 89.6 mtoe (35.3 percent)
- Canada 82.9 mtoe (26.2 percent)
- United States 58.8 mtoe (15.7 percent)
- Russia 38.1 mtoe (5.5 percent)
- Norway 26.7 mtoe (63.9 percent)
- India 25.2 mtoe (4.8 percent)
- Japan 19.3 mtoe (3.8 percent)
- Valenzuela 17.4 mtoe (21.7 percent)
- Sweden 15.1 mtoe (29.8 percent)

and there are 140 other countries around the globe that uses this power.
Conclusion
We think this is a great source because...
Doesn't waste natural resources
uses running water found in nature
Can be used for centuries and dams are still useable
