Hydropower

Hydropower

By: Dominic Imwalle, Jason Rebholz, Zack Berwald


Formation

Formation

  • Hydropower is energy from moving water

  • The movement of water between the earth and its atmosphere is in a continuous cycle.

  • When sun draws moisture from oceans and rivers its called evaporation

  • Then the moisture condenses into clouds which is called condensation.

  • After that the moisture is released from the clouds which's called precipitation then it starts back over


History

History

  • In year 1087 A.D five thousand water wheels were made in France

  • Water wheels were used to grind flour and grain for 2,000 by the Greeks

  • The first hydro plant was built at Niagara Falls.

  • Ancient Egyptians first used waterwheels on Nile river in early 200 B.C

  • 1700s factories of industrial revolutions used water to power machines


Obtaining

Obtaining

  • Over 80,000 dams have been built in the U.S

  • The top hydro plant state is in Tennessee with five hydro plants

  • Towers carry energy from a generator in a Dallas Dam


Advantages

Advantages

  • An advantage is that hydropower is renewable

  • Snow and rain replenish hydropower

  • hydropower is one of the cheapest energy sources


Disadvantage

Disadvantage

  • There are 80,000 dams in U.S but only 2,400 generate electricity

  • Dams in U.S built to control flooding wind irrigate farmland, not for electricity production

  • Depending the amount of rainfall during year provides between 5 and 10 percent of country electricity

  • Roads in community's have to move when dam is being built


Current and future conservation

Current and Future conservation

Hydropower is renewable and is replenished by snow and rainfall


Future technology

Future Technology

  • One idea is to make under water wind mills

  • Cars might use water as gas by adding hydrogen and oxygen gas

  • Make more chain bobbling ducks to span part of Estorny Mouth, making wave energy into energy into electricity
