Hydropower Capacity Increases Contribution as a Renewable Energy Source

Global trends point to a continuous increase in hydropower generation and capacity, despite of a slowdown in BRIC countries like Brazil or China

Although the capacity is nowhere near a level that matches the International Energy Agency’s SDS (Sustainable Development Scenario), hydropower remains one of the largest renewable power generation sources in the world. The SDS is a daring initiative that aims a transforming the global energy industry by addressing three key goals that can help regain control over global warming.

 

Temp-Pro works with clients across the full spectrum of renewable energy sources, providing its expertise and knowledge in industrial thermometers commonly used in power generation operations. Understanding that hydropower continues to grow year after year at a rate of almost 3 percent, our company is poised to remain a relevant player in renewables as the industry continues to evolve.

 

Hydropower is not a new concept, with evidence of its use as far back as the 4th century B.C. In its most modern form, hydropower gained popularity as many countries sought to recover from WWII by garnering the power of water falling or channeled into a hydro power plant to convert fast-moving water into electricity. Today, as renewable technology evolves the opportunity to gain more output is leading hydropower to continue its relevant contribution to the global energy industry.

 

Many of the systems used in hydro power plants have similar dynamics as conventional power generation. The need to employ temperature sensing devices across its system make Temp-Pro a valuable partner for organizations managing these types of capital assets–particularly by ensuring their constant operation through proactive maintenance schedules. We are uniquely positioned to help renewable power plants in hydropower with their industrial temperature measurement needs.

 

As more innovation occurs in hydropower in the coming years and decades, the opportunity to supply new products, equipment and solutions is part of our long-term strategy to play an active role in not only Hydroelectric, but also in Solar, Thermal, Renewable Steam, Biomass Fueled, and Wind Turbines. Renewable energy is the future and we plan to be a part of the growth and role this sector will have in the global energy industry.
