  • Even though hydro power plants can work for over 50 years, renovation of machinery (especially turbines) needs to be done after 25-30 years and this renovation cost could be as high as 50% of the initial capex

  • The maximum plant load factor that can be achieved in a large hydro plant is about 0.65...very difficult to go beyond that...

  • So far we are harnessing the energy of the flowing water in rivers and canals. But we can harness only when the water is flowing. But in a system I have designed and patent pending, a small quantity of water say 100,000 liters or its multiples in the system designed by me and with the turbine designed by me, by using pumps, the motion of the water mass is caused within the given water mass. Energy spent to pump water is much less than the energy generated by the turbine. Hence a small quantity of water in a proper structure and with a proper turbine can generated required quantum of energy output. To start the system we have to take energy from external sources. But once started, the system supplies energy not only for the system maintenance, but also to the external load. In other words, perpetuum mobile is possible without causing any harm to the environment.

  • Ambitious Mississippi River hydrokinetic projects up close

    Staking a claim to a site for a hydrokinetic energy project can feel a bit like the wild West. A recent flap over rights to study and seek licenses for hydrokinetic projects in the lower Mississippi River illustrates the challenges of the race to get a permit, and the changing ways in which regulators evaluate permit applications.

    There's significant interest in developing the hydrokinetic resources of the lower Mississippi River. Developers have filed about 300 preliminary permit applications for Mississippi River hydrokinetic projects, with two developers -- Free Flow Power Corporation and Northland Power -- applying for the vast bulk of the sites. As of April 2011, Free Flow Power had 24 active permits for the Mississippi River, with applications filed for another 105 river sites.
