Hydroelectric power is widely recognized as a climate neutral way of generating electric energy, together with wind and solar energy.
The growth of this sector has been driven mainly by the following two factors:
With more stringent legislations being implemented in most countries aimed at reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases, the pressure is increasing on countries and organizations to switch from fossil-based energy resources to renewable sources, hydropower being one of them.
The ongoing electrification of road transport is expected to create an increased and sustained demand for clean electricity.
HDPE PE100 pipes, geomembranes and sheets can play an important role in hydroelectric power piping systems due to their corrosion resistance and ease of installation.
SABIC solutions for hydropower offers:
- Long term hydrostatic strength
- Corrosion resistance
- Flexibility, ease of installation
- Hydroelectric power plants
- Hydroelectric energy storage
