Since ancient times, hydropower has been used for irrigation and the operation of various mechanical devices, such as watermills, dock cranes and power houses.
Today, hydropower is almost exclusively used in conjunction with the modern development of hydro-electric power, allowing use of distant energy sources. Hydropower has recently enjoyed a revival as international institutions such as the World Bank tries to find solutions avoiding adding substantial amounts of carbon to the atmosphere.
