... hydropower is a technique use moving water of the river to produce electricity in isolated regions with negligible environmental impact. Micro hydro system (as in Fig.1) is comprised of a number of components, the most important incorporate the intake where water is redirected from the natural stream, river, or maybe a waterfall. In temperate climates, this structure must resist ice as well. ...

Air pollution can have a repercussion on human health. Economic activity and non-renewable use can lead to pollution. CO2 emissions are widely used by previous studies as a proxy for environmental degradation. CO2 emissions exhibit upward trends in most countries including developing countries. The environmental issue has set alarm bells ringing; t...

... It is basically the conversion of wind energy into mechanical energy from the turbine to finally generate electricity. We can say that the hourly energy generated (EWEG) by a wind turbine of nominal power (PWEG) is determined by the following formulas (Abdel-hamed et al., 2019;Ali et al., 2019): For the simulation, a Bergey Excel 10-R DC wind turbine with an estimated life span of 20 years has been used. ...

The integration of renewable energy technologies and the consequent reduction in investment costs has led to an increase in the use of distributed energy resources (DER), which has allowed the deployment of more and more microgrids. Despite the many benefits that can be derived from microgrids, they still face many barriers to participating in the electricity industry compared to traditional grids. This paper proposes to address the implications of installing renewable energy in the parish 5 de Agosto, Stone Mine Sector of the city of Esmeraldas, through a technical-economic analysis of the implementation of a microgrid using the HOMER network software. The analysis shows that implementing a microgrid for renewable energy production significantly reduces total costs, unit energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions over the entire project life cycle. Finally, it is concluded that the photovoltaic matrix produces 82.3%, wind turbines 15.3% and the contribution from the grid is 2.45% of the total energy, respectively. The percentage of renewable energies in the system is 100%.

Una gran parte de la población mundial vive en zonas rurales geográficamente aisladas, remotas y escasamente pobladas. Las nano redes que emplean sistemas energéticos híbridos (HES) basados en la energía fotovoltaica (FV) y los parques eólicos se consideran una opción eficaz para electrificar zonas remotas y aisladas que están lejos de las redes convencionales. Esto es aplicable a zonas que reciben altos promedios de radiación solar y suficiente velocidad media velocidad del viento anualmente. En esta investigación, se modeló, simuló y optimizó una nano red de CC híbrida solar fotovoltaica y eólica, con almacenamiento de energía y un generador diésel de. Se realizó un estudio del emplazamiento y se obtuvieron datos sobre el recurso eólico y la radiación solar para calcular la carga. solar para la previsión de la carga y la modelización del sistema. Se utilizó el software HOMER para la modelización del sistema. sistema. La optimización del coste mínimo del sistema se llevó a cabo de la instalación, teniendo en cuenta los costes de los componentes del sistema, la radiación solar horaria y los parámetros de calificación como entradas en el programa de simulación. Se especificaron las variables de sensibilidad para examinar el efecto de sus incertidumbres en el rendimiento del sistema. El análisis económico y medioambiental indicó que es más aconsejable electrificar los asentamientos remotos utilizando una nano red de CC basada en sistemas híbridos con múltiples fuentes renovables, ya que tienen menores costes de funcionamiento y son más ambiental debido a la menor dependencia de las unidades generadoras de diésel. de las unidades de generación diesel.

Hydroelectricity is electricity produced by the generators that are pushed by the water movement. This is one of the widely used sustainable power. One of the major advantages of the hydro power after constructing the plant is wastage is not created.22% of the word power is generated by hydroelectricity, which constitutes around about 78% of power from inexhaustible natural resources. The yearly hydroelectric creation of India is 115.6 TWh with an introduced limit is 33.6 GW. Miniature hydro is a word utilized for hydroelectric force establishments that commonly produce a power up to 300 KW of intensity. These establishments can give capacity to a disconnected home or little network of sloping territories, or are here and there associated with electric force organizations. There are a considerable lot of these establishments around the globe, especially in agricultural countries as they can give a prudent wellspring of energy without acquisition of fuel. In the current paper an endeavor is made to portray the different parts of miniature hydro for creation of power in uneven regions like site evaluation, development and attributes, job of miniature hydro in supportable improvement and so forth.

In today’s world, many countries, especially developing countries, are facing energy crisis, an increase in industrialization for development programs being the apparent reason. Fossil fuels being the most prominent source for the energy production are having an adverse effect on our environment. Also, with the rate, we are exploiting the energy resources; fossils fuels may be a principal source of energy that may see its end in the near future. If we continue to meet this demand using conventional methods like thermal power plants, environmental pollution is the most prominent aspect that we will have to continue to compromise. While pollution and climate change are the biggest challenges in the modern era, switching our attention to renewable energy sources to meet our energy demands can be the best feasible solution. Out of different renewable energy sources available, hydropower is the most readily available and clean sources of renewable energy worldwide. It can be considered as the leading source of renewable energy across the world. In this chapter, an attempt has been made to study the different ways to harness hydropower such as using static head, kinetic head, or any other disruptive technology. Environmental aspect of hydropower has also been studied. A review of different technologies such as hydrokinetic, vortex flow turbine, and water wheels have been carried out along with conventional hydropower. Thus, our effort has emphasized hydropower’s overall scenario as the most reliable renewable energy source with more emphasis on small hydropower. This book chapter aims to discuss the hydropower production scenario and its all-around aspects and efforts, which are made to develop it as the most significant factor for the sustainable future.KeywordsClean energyHydroelectric generationEnergyRiversHydrokineticHead
Chapter
The increasing interest in renewable energy sources originates from the negative impacts of overexploitation and the use of fossil fuels with their damaging influence on climate change. Besides, the continuous population growth requires higher energy provision or related energy services (e.g., heated living spaces, electricity, information, mobility) with increasing environmental impacts. Consequently, the “energy supply problem” in conjunction with the underlying “environmental problem” is a major topic in resource assessment, technology development, as well as in the energy and environmental worldwide policies. Renewable energies originate in the movement and gravitation of the planet (i.e., tidal energy, wind energy), heat stored and released by the Earth (i.e., geothermal energy), and in particular energy radiated by the Sun (i.e., solar radiation). The main renewable energy sources, without the consideration of heating systems, are presented in this chapter. The resource estimation available from different sources as well as the measurement and resource assessment techniques is illustrated. The main renewable sources are classified and characterized in a particular location, describing the renewable energy flows and considering the spatial and time variations. The focus is on the principal variables that need to be known for the hybrid renewable energy systems design and project development.
