The present investigations were carried out to develop a comprehensive and socially acceptable environment management plan so as to minimize the harmful impacts of . But the general belief is the thermal power projects are more polluting and damaging the environment than the hydro electric projects. The main reason behind this impression is that there are visible symptoms like smoke emanating from chimneys, disposal of fly ash etc. Water management projects, however, involve consideration of a number of factors—legal and political, technological, environmental, and social impact. Hydroelectric energy was given a considerable boost with the advent of alternating current and its associated technology, which made transmission of electrical energy economical. In this paper the environmental impact assessment of the Gotvand hydro-electrical dam has been evaluated in the three environment elements, biological, Physical-chemical and cultural units.

Welcome to Hydro Tasmania's new education outreach program, Generation Hydro. We provide a variety of ways for students, teachers and parents to access and learn about our history; how hydropower is generated in Tasmania; how we manage native flora and fauna in and around our lakes and rivers and what renewable energy options are used in Tasmania. electric power industry. Both small and large hydroelectric power developments were instrumental in the early expansion of the electric power industry. Hydroelectric power comes from flowing water winter and spring runoff from mountain streams and clear lakes. Water, when it is falling by the force of gravity, can be used to turn. Hydro Tasmania offers grants of up to $ for not-for-profit (NFP) community organisations based in Tasmania to help fund projects that make a real difference for people and communities. We want to support community groups to achieve great outcomes. The program is now in its fourth year and so far we've funded 20 projects.
