The world is not prepared to be net-zero by 2050. For almost 150 years, it has been seduced by fossil fuels and now, 70% of renewable energy is lacking to end the dependence on them.
There is one additional source of inexpensive and environmentally friendly source to add to the growing renewables mix to reduce this deficit, which the world seems to have forgotten about: Rivers.
Every single day, the 140 world’s largest rivers discharge 71.5 Billion Metric Tonnes of Energy. That is more than 3 million Olympic swimming pools (one is 2,500 metric tonnes) in just one day – and this is a continuous renewable source of electricity.
Bentall Microturbine Developments’ patented microturbines are able to harness the rivers’ kinetic power that is currently being wasted, closing the green renewables energy gap a valuable little.
