Hydro and Ocean Power Technology

Hydroelectric power, which in the sense the power produced by running water is the very common conventional way of generating electricity. In the United States, about 6 present of the electricity we use is generated by hydropower. In Germany, 3.5% hydropower was the most prevalent of all electricity generation sources in six states in 2017. Washington had the largest hydroelectricity share in 2017, at 72% of the state’s total electricity generation. Some hydroelectric power plants just use a small canal to channel the river water through a turbine. These are called run-of-river hydropower and another one is pumped-storage  can even store power. Twice a day, ocean tides rise and fall which leads to the movement of large amount of water. This daily cycle of tidal motion can be harnessed to generate electricity. An emerging sector, called marine hydrokinetics, or "MHK", harnesses kinetic energy from the oceans' waves and tides to generate power. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is a process that converts the thermal energy in ocean water to electrical energy that people can use.
