Dams are extremely expensive to build and must be built to a very high standard. The high cost of dam construction means that they must operate for many decades to become profitable.
Hydroelectricity: What are the Advantages and Disadvantages?
Therefore, hydropower is essential and considered as an economical factor for producing electricity. There are many untapped hydropower resources in the world. This paper is the review paper which presents about the condition of the hydroelectricity in Myanmar in detail. Hydropower is a clean energy that is a prosperous gift from nature to produce electricity. It is the power derived from continuous running water and falling water. Although it has some drawbacks to use, it cannot be denied for its advantages like abundant, reliable, low operating costs and can supply as a backup power during blackout situation and can also use as surplus energy in base load and peak load conditions in pumped storage power station.
Review on hydropower in Myanmar
Hydropower has the ability to generate electricity without emitting greenhouse gasses, however, it can also cause environmental and social threats, such as damaged wildlife habitat and harmed water quality. Hydropower is the most important and widely-used renewable source of energy. Hydropower represents about 17 percent of total electricity production. Industries also use other renewable sources, including wood, municipal waste, landfill gas, biomass, and geothermal energy to generate electricity. China is the largest producer of hydroelectricity, followed by Canada, Brazil, and the United States.
For more than a century, the technology for using falling water to create hydroelectricity has existed. The evolution of the modern hydropower turbine began in the.
Examining the Pros and Cons of Hydropower
Hydro power plants provide clean and affordable electricity in large quantities. They are often the main renewable energy technology choice for governments due to its ability to deliver reliable baseload energy with very minimal fluctuation. Hydro power plants are also able to accommodate changing demand and suited to large scale network response. The accumulation of water in turn change the flow of water, consequently its temperature and the migration of fish living along the affected water path. Water damming for Hydro power plants has further effects on local ecologies due to flooded vegetation, changing water depth and chemical composition, and effects on siltation.
