Scientists at IIT Roorkee are testing a floating device that can generate electricity from flowing surface water of rivers and streams, paving the way for an alternative source of renewable energy.
Traditional hydropower plants require the construction of large scale dams, which have significant ecological and environmental consequences.
To counter this, a team at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee are testing a prototype that harnesses energy from flowing surface water.
