Water a precious natural resource, fundamental for human life, is an important source for renewable energy generation. On a global level, water is used for 73% of renewable electric energy production, about 16% of the total electric energy production (1).
Water is the primary source for Etea’s renewable energy production. In the mini-hydro sector we have designed, built and manage (in some cases with local partners) 10 run-of-the-river hydro-electric plants, generating a total installed power equivalent to 46 MW and an average annual corresponding production of 150,000 MWh.
These facilities are located in Italy (1 plant with installed capacity of 3 MW), Albania (4 plant with installed capacity of 30 MW) and Romania (5 plant with installed capacity of 13 MW).
