With a production of more than 342 TWh – around 35.5 % of the electricity generated from renewable energy sources – hydropower makes a significant contribution to achieving the EU target of 34 % of electricity generation from renewable energy sources by 2020, referring to the actual figures of VGB PowerTech e.V.. So, hydropower is not only a reliable, climate-friendly and very efficient renewable energy source, but also the frontrunner in Europe in the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources, playing a promising and multifunctional role as an enabler of the energy transition.
