Renewable energy from rivers
Bristol is a city of three rivers. We have the amazing tide of the of River Severn feeding in to the River Avon and the steady flow of the River Avon and the River Frome.
The rivers Frome and Avon have waterfalls, weirs and more and yet Bristol doesn't seem to be doing anything with ou rivers to generate electricty. The idea isn't to design and create ugly structures but to look at the possibility of creating small lagoons, flood style lagoons where spaces can be used and these areas also used as boating lakes and for waterfalls and weirs to see infrastructure added out of view but which will help generate the city.
Why the contribution is important
Energy prices continue to rise and Bristol is trying to generate it's own electricty company, our rivers are key to the success of renewable power if the ideas are designed properly.
