The generation of hydroelectric energy occupies the first place at a global level. In Europe the hydroelectric potential is now being entirely utilised. This is why, Enel Green Power is now concentrating on run-of-river hydro power, a type of system that, despite having a limited unit power, can give a significant contribution to the demand of electricity.
The role of the mini-hydro plants, furthermore, is even more enhanced by the growing need to protect the environment. Small-scale hydroelectric plants are in fact characterized by construction and organizational modalities with a very low impact on the surrounding area. Moreover, they can also be managed by small communities, as well as be integrated into a collective and balanced system of water resource usage.
At present, Enel Green Power controls plants in Europe, North America and Latin America.
