Hydroelectric power is without doubt one of the oldest power generation methods available - it forms a key role in the production of electricity across the globe. Using energy captured from flowing water, it is estimated that hydroelectric power contributed 19% of the world’s power in 2006. It is still the most frequently used renewable energy source worldwide, offering benefits such as a lack of direct emissions or by-products into the environment, easy maintenance and low running costs.
