MicroGen Renewables

MicroGen Renewables

MicroGen Renewables deal with a wide range of renewable energy technologies. Micro hydropower is the focus of this presentation which will show the results of a two year project to develop satellite-based earth observation technology with University of Leicester. The resultant software is a break-through in pro-actively identifying, and then qualifying as "viable", sites on small rivers where different types of micro hydropower could be installed. The new software allows the user to scan whole river valleys, anywhere on the planet, with a view to harvesting hydro electricity.
