With the assistance of some 80 people took place in Tomcod Forum seminar in Chile mega hydroelectric real “alternative for a sustainable future? Whose main conclusion is that the country needs to develop alternative energy generation, which is not only based on water.
Juan Pablo Oregon, coordinator of the campaign Ecosystems and Patagonia without dams, Chile explained that currently requires a sustainable energy policy with a strong foundation for energy efficiency, which is cheap and attainable. It is therefore important to create a level playing field between different energy sources.
For his part, Roberto Roman engineer who discussed current developments in the energy matrix and the alternatives to mega-dams and power plants, said the trends in the world “takes over” intelligent network is the means that the claims are dynamically modulated to maximize resources and also have low emissions.
In this framework, also developed a forum on citizen and indigenous experiences of those affected by the energy mega projects and institutional responses, in which one of the panelists was Irene Romero Milieus Community Council, who explained that his community is planning a geothermal affect them seriously.
The development of new small-scale hydroelectric plants could be an important new impetus for this type of energy enterprises, according to research undertaken by engineers and scientists from the Technische Universidad Munched (TUM) in Germany. These small plants would be more efficient from an economic standpoint, greener and its construction would be simpler, among other important advantages.
The design of new hydro plants could allow renewable energy generation in thousands of geographical locations in which it is not possible, for various reasons, installing traditional core. In Germany, for example, there are no possibilities of developing hydropower infrastructure.
At the same time, other large-scale hydroelectric projects that are carried out in different countries have attracted criticism because of its profound impact on the environment. This determines the future of hydropower, considered the oldest renewable energy source.
