MINI AND MICRO HYDROELECTRICITY

What is hydroelectric energy?

A source of renewable energy exploiting water from rivers, torrents, waterfalls and dams (cascade effect) to produce electricity, through the transformation of potential gravitational energy into kinetic energy which, in turn, is transformed into electric energy by means of an alternator or a turbine.

In Italy almost 15% of gross energy production derives from this source.

As a result of the reduction of the water content of dams and reservoirs, the large-scale plants are making way for small-scale operations. For many years hydroelectric production was concentrated almost exclusively on large-scale production which, at the time, was considered more profitable. Now, however, since the Bersani Decree in 2007 with the granting of government incentives for micro and mini power plants there has been a boom in small scale energy producers.
