What is small scale hydropower?

Hydropower is a stable source of renewable energy. Its constant production of electricity has some clear advantages over variable renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar.

Ever improving turbine technologies make it possible to generate power from smaller rivers and lower drops without the need to construct dams or reservoirs. These turbines can often generate enough power for several households or a small community.

Small scale hydropower is a great source of cheap and locally generated energy, causing minimal impact on its environment. So what's holding us back?

What's holding us back?

Currently hydropower schemes and projects tend to be very bespoke and unique to their location. This means a lot of preparation is required before a turbine can actually be installed, regardless of the size, impact or return of the scheme.

Cost

Thousands of pounds are charged by consultants analysing the suitability of land for hydropower

What will Stroom do?

Stroom will make it as easy and cheap as possible for landowners and communities to generate their own electricity in a sustainable way. We will use machine learning techniques on satellite imagery to automate and standardise all the preparatory work.
