2020 stBN powergensource water.svg

hydro

water-storage plant producing electricity with turbines fed by water coming from a lake behind a dam.
Note: Power plants in Switzerland must have a storage capacity of at least 25% of the average expected winter production, otherwise they are plant:method=run-of-the-river plants.
water-pumped-storage plant producing electricity like plant:method=water-storage and additionaly able to pump water from a lower lake to the storage lake when needed.
run-of-the-river plant producing electricity with turbine using stream of a river (with no storage dam)
Note: Power plants in Switzerland having storage dams with a capacity less than 25% of the average expected winter production are plant:method=run-of-the-river plants.
