Satellite Data to Aid Turbine Revolution

Space technology is to be used in a novel plan to identify locations in rivers for water-powered energy.

The University of Leicester will work with a British company, High Efficiency Heating UK Ltd, with interests in renewable energies in order to locate the best sites to deploy micro-hydropower turbines.

The Technology Strategy Board has granted 120,400 to High Efficiency Heating UK Ltd (HEH) and the University of Leicester for a 10 month research project - ISMORTASED (Identification of Sites for Micro-hydropower On Rivers Through Applied Satellite and Environmental Data) Project (No. 131545).

The expertise of the University of Leicester in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is key to cutting the costs of identifying the optimum site in a river for power generation.
