Exploring Hydropower

In 2006, about 20 percent of the world's electricity was generated from hydroelectric power. In the presentation, scholars review the water cycle and gravitational energy to begin to understand how humans harness the power of water. They explore a brief history of hydroelectric power in the United States and move on to the process of generating electricity from water, the advantages and disadvantages of it, its efficiency, and its environmental impacts.
