Facts

The FRI-EL Group originated in a region where hydroelectric power generation played a key role over many decades. Thus, the Group is quite interested in this form of energy generation. The FRI-EL is engaged in the development, realization and operation of hydroelectric power plants. Currently, the company operates 21 hydroelectric power plants with a total capacity of  24.05 MW.

Hydroelectric power uses the kinetic energy of the water to generate electrical energy. A hydraulic turbine is powered by water and the released energy is converted into electrical energy by a generator.

Advantages

  • Hydroelectric power is considered to be very environmentally friendly because water is only used to generate electricity but it is not wasted.

  • Since no fossil fuels are used, there are no greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Hydroelectric power can be used as a “gap filler” for periods when other renewable energy sources are not providing energy (in the absence of wind or at night).
