Power is the foundation of modern life
Electric power keeps industrial societies going. It is only when electricity is continually available in the requisite quantity that goods can be produced and transported, and basic human needs met.
Renewable energy on the rise
At the start of the 21st Century, the generation of electricity from renewable sources is on the rise. Hydropower is currently the only renewable energy source that can deliver power on an industrial scale at competitive prices. About a sixth of all of the power produced worldwide is generated using hydropower.
