In Germany have developed a water film generator

The Engineers of the Fraunhofer Institute of silicate chemistry, located in Bavaria, presented a new method of producing electricity using hydropower. To do this, they took a very thin film, coated on both sides with a conductive elastic layer and the isolation, and then, having fixed them in the streams, began to receive electricity.

Continuously flowing water distorts the film, which constantly bends and generates electric charge.

This setting can be placed at any depth, securing it at the bottom or one end near the shore. The development allows its use even at a flow velocity of not more than half a meter per second. The system does not depend on wind, sun and other natural phenomena, and therefore, it is able to operate continuously, supplying electric power, while remaining completely eco-friendly and safe.

Their development is perfect for small streams and rivers, so using a small installation of such a plan, it is possible to provide electricity to the broken pond near the camp, and if desired, even a small village, if you supply it with a sufficient number of installations.

Now, the developers plan to reduce the size of the installation, simultaneously achieving a generate 100 watts of electricity for one cycle of operation.
