A new design for a hydroelectric generator could cheaply light up off-grid areas. The Hydro-Electric Barrel is a spinning water wheel that floats on the water surface and turns in the current. The spinning motion drives permanent magnet generators inside. It could generate enough power to light banks of LEDs and light up bridges, buoys, or even charge mobile devices in off-grid areas and developing countries. And, because it sits on the surface, it doesn’t disrupt the environment as much as other hydro-power technologies.
There are three types of hydropower facilities: impoundment, diversion, and pumped storage. Some hydropower plants use dams and some do not. The images below show both types of hydropower plants.
Many dams were built for other purposes and hydropower was added later. In the United States, there are about 80,000 dams of which only 2,400 produce power. The other dams are for recreation, stock/farm ponds, flood control, water supply, and irrigation.
Hydropower plants range in size from small systems for a home or village to large projects producing electricity for utilities. The sizes of hydropower plants are described below.
In 1980s, The inventor Stanley Meyer invented a car using water powered energ, this is the first one to make physicists impossible thought become true. This car make the water into hydrogen fuel – first stage appearance, Myers attracted a large number of curious eyes.
Today i find a great tankless water heater, that's very easy to carry, instant hot water and portable.
Comfort clean upanywhere comes with regulator and hose order yours online now. Portable tankless water heater uses an intense propane flame to instantly heat water the moment it passes through.
Water-powered street lights. Water + a little generator + LED street fixture = happy illumination for everyone.
Well, we don't know quite yet. Ireland is testing a water-powered lamp for street lighting – just one right now, flanked by two solar-powered LED fixtures. The fixture is powered by a little turbine powered by the stream under the footbridge where the test fixture is installed; one generator can power three of these street lamps. Oh, did I mention that the water-powered setup is €3,000? The water-powered lamp is backed up with a solar collector for those days when the stream is low, or something like that.
So, the conversion is €3,000 = $243,712.67 USD. I'm kidding, of course.
