  3. 3. Easing the energy crisis with efficient hydro power Integrated, flexible architecture for all your generation installations As regulators impose clean electricity targets from sustainable generation, electricity producers focus on stable renewables such as hydro power. As the most widely used energy source available today and with power plants ranging from less than one to more than 100 megawatts, hydro production is considered as a flexible and reliable mainstream renewable source. The expected annual increase in total energy generation from renewable sources. Hydro Power Generation • 03 Improving the performance of small hydro plants Between those two extremes is the small power plant, which ranges from 1 to 30 megawatts. Operators of these plants are constantly striving to improve performance and to guarantee security for both plant processes and the people working there, but additionally they need to: • Minimise system failures and ensure high availability • Maintain the right levels of power quality • Reduce their investment and operating costs Meanwhile, improving operational energy efficiency and reducing the environmental impacts are also important considerations. What plant operators really need is an integrated solution that reliably and consistently addresses all of their concerns. Flexible, efficient solutions with higher availability Schneider Electric™ offers precisely that: a complete power and control solution for hydro power plants, built to enable higher availability as well as multi-site management, remote maintenance and diagnostics. We provide solutions specifically tailored to the specific needs of all hydro power plants, whatever their size, ensuring that each is: • Scaleable and modular • Flexible and based on world-class products • Easy to use, integrate, operate, and maintain • Built to enable high availability million GWh The amount of power projected to be generated by renewable energy in 2035. 998-1171369_GMA-GB.indd 3 2012-10-30 15:39:21
