Reinventing the wheel

The discussion about dependence on oil and gas from Russia makes it urgently clear that there is no alternative to the energy transition. Hydropower is an important building block in the sustainable energy mix of the future. There is still a lot of untapped potential here, especially in the southern German states. At the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences (h_da), a team led by Prof. Dr. Nicole Saenger is therefore working on helping the millennia-old waterwheel tradition to make the leap into the modern age and thus make sustainable use of the potential of water as an energy source.
