The generation of electricity in small hydropower plants is not only ecologically but also economically interesting.

Turbines convert the power
of water into electricity

The generation of energy from hydropower works as follows:

The kinetic energy of the water moves the paddle wheels in the turbines.
The turbines run generators that convert mechanical energy into electricity.

One rule applies to hydropower plants: the more water and the more gradient, the better. Both factors increase the resulting hydropower.
