Details

The study examined the technical, financial, and environmental viability of different river sites and different energy technologies, culminating in a design study for a specific project to electrify a lock gate drive using a solar photovoltaic power supply. Additionally, decision-making guidelines were prepared to assist Environment Agency staff in assessing navigation sites, energy requirements, and options for instalment.
