Our waterways already support hydro schemes generating around 20 MWh per year, the equivalent energy for around 6,200 homes. We also have the potential to create a further 17MWh of hydro power for adjacent buildings and developments, particularly those located near weirs and locks.
As well as mitigating the impacts of climate change, our waterways can also play a role in energy generation.
