The Reemergence of Microhydro in the UK

The 3 June 2012 issue of the Observer Magazine includes a new article by Catherine Deveney on the reemergence of microhydro in the UK. The article profiles landowners who have restarted ageing mill infrastructure or who have created new hydroelectric systems to harness water energy on their properties. The author also speculates on larger systems that could be run by communities. There are some interesting tensions on reaping the benefits of this renewable energy source versus the potential impacts on wildlife who use the waterways.
