Some excerpts : Study of IRENA 2019 on Hydropower,New Journal from Elsevier and An indepth tutorial on hydropower

"Hydropower lowest- cost of electricity in the World" : 
Hydropower has high upfront cost.But low maintenance cost. "The global weighted average cost of electricity from hydropower projects in 2018 was US$0.047 per kWh, making it the lowest-cost source of electricity in many markets" (IRENA 2019).More such facts.

New Journal from Elsevier : Energy and Climate Change
(Shared,CFP)A new journal "Energy and Climate Change" was launched by Elsevier. The scope of the journal is "wide range of areas of energy and climate related fields that apply to the science and technology, as well as economics and social sciences".Editor in Chief : Leon E. Clarke and  Yi-Ming Wei. If you are interested to submit a paper,click here.

An in-depth tutorial on Hydro-power
A simple but in-depth tutorial on hydro-power is prepared and uploaded by  Keith Vaugh of STEM Education & Design at MAGVA Design. The tutorial is exhaustive and self-explanatory.It includes all the related topics of a course in hydro-power. You can find the tutorial by clicking this link.

Condition Monitoring of Penstock by a GIS based monitoring system

A new research idea was proposed where special condition monitoring system can be developed with the help of Geographic Information System(GIS) based attribute tables, selection of vital parameters, identification of their significance, development of the indicator with these parameters and encoding the same in the attribute table in the GIS Map. Once the data connection between the field to software is established real time monitoring of the pen-stock condition will become a possibility.Although economic feasibility with respect to the monitoring system will be one of the criteria for sustenance of such systems.

The idea is posted at http://www.baipatra.ws

A new fish friendly transport system,electricity from drop of water and other news from water based energy world

Project awarded to reduce the  capital costs, operational costs of wave energy conversion technology.

Wave Energy Prize was awarded to Aqua Harmonics.

New project to create “a new fish-friendly transport system.” 

Chief Scientist Dr R. K. Kotnala and his research partner Dr Jyoti Shah of NPL have produced electricity  with nothing except a few drops of water.

Forging a nexus and managing both water and energy resources in a tangible manner optimizing the utilization of the resource availability is important for sustenance of mankind

Renewable energy” in seawater desalination
