One of the unique aspects of the companies that meet and work at EcoTech Miami Gardens is a focus on what is going on around the world in the areas of sustainable energy and production methods.
Businesses in the Energytech sector at https://ecotechvisions.com/ can study how different countries are using different power sources, and then create ways to integrate those options and technologies into this area.
One of the sources of power that is not used as much in the United States as in other countries around the world is hydroelectric power. This is energy that is harvested from flowing water. While it is commonly associated with water being controlled in the flow from a dam, it can also be harvested from naturally flowing water from rivers, and even by utilizing the movement of the water in the ocean through tides.
How It Works
Hydroelectric power requires no consumption or change in the water itself, so it is fully sustainable and renewable. It relies on the force of the running water passing over massive turbines. These turbines rotate in response to the movement and the force created by the water, which in turn generates electricity through the rotational movement energy being converted into electrical power in massive generators.
Currently, China, Brazil, and Canada are the top three countries using and producing hydroelectric power in the world. The United States is the fourth, but it is 100 billion kilowatt hours a year behind third-place Canada and almost 500 billion kilowatt hours per year behind first-place China.
Finding ways to tap into the power of hydroelectric systems is essential in producing truly green electricity that can power entire cities, counties, and states with a dramatically lowered environmental impact.
