Electricity from hydropower
The cold water makes its way through massive mountain rock, crossing national borders and overcoming obstacles – the power of the water seems boundless.
That is why hydropower remains the core of the “renewable energy family” to this day. Its high level of efficiency makes it the most efficient generation technology there is. It also has a small CO2 footprint: More than 180 million tonnes of emissions are avoided in Europe each year through the use of hydropower.
