Making Climate-Friendly Electricity Possible
Voith Technologies Boost Energy Switch
All over the world, hydro power stations from Voith generate eco-friendly electricity safely and reliably, while Voith pumped storage power stations ensure stable power grids. Voith is at the forefront of all developments focusing on new ways of regenerative power production - for example the potential of the oceans that has hardly been untapped so far.
Hydro power is currently the technically most developed regenerative energy. Over 80 percent of all electricity generated from renewable sources originate from hydro power stations.
And the possibilities are enormous: in North America, only 33 percent of the feasible potential are being utilized, while the figure for Europe is 30 percent, for Asia 23 percent, for South America 20 percent and Africa 8 percent. The worldwide electricity consumption is set to grow at a steady pace, especially in the emerging markets. The ultimate goal must be to satisfy this demand with hydro power stations, in order to counteract the effects of the climate change: technologies from Voith ensure that this can be done.
