Did you know ...

that hydropower is one of mankind's oldest sources of energy? Chinese farmers already used it 5,000 years ago. The water wheel was invented by Greek engineers in the 4th century B.C. Today, hydropower produces more energy worldwide than nuclear energy, even though only a fifth of the potential is being used. In the medium term, about 16,000 terawatt-hours could be obtained additionally, that's the quantity the whole world consumed in 2005. Power out of water is one of the most sustainable sources of renewable energy. Especially if it is gained with small, decentralized power stations, equipped with OSSBERGER turbines.
