Part of: Waterpower '91: A New View of Hydro Resources


Hydropower is the most natural form of energy generated in the World. It allows us to make use of our natural resources without pollution. It harnesses the basic fundamentals of nature by daming the gravitational force of water flowing to the Ocean. Nature uses the atmosphere to evaporate water so that it can return to earth in the form of rain or snow. Hydro Wells use the atmosphere to raise water from below the surface so that it can fall back by gravity. New technology in air bubble lifting raises 4 times the ratio of water to air while half the air needed is being hydraulically compressed. Moving stored water up and down to generated electricity allows our dams to store water for flood control, irrigation and recreation without releasing it to produce electricity.
