Weir-ed and Wonderful

Abstract

During the industrial revolution mills generated their power by utilising the force of nearby rivers. Now in the 21st century micro-hydro schemes are popping up along our waterways using modern technology to generate green energy from our rivers. Jason Teasdale goes out to investigate various schemes located across the Northwest and learns about the challenges and opportunities faced by these small-scale hydropower schemes.
