Water Power Generator
At around 33 percent, water is still Bavaria's most important renewable energy source, as the Bavarian Energy Atlas shows. But above all, conventional mini hydroelectric power plants with a manageable yield are controversial - they intervene in the ecosystem. Fraunhofer researchers are working on an environmentally friendly alternative: In the future, innovative elastomer materials will convert the mechanical energy of water flows in small rivers directly into electrical energy.
