Comments Off on Paris Putting Turbines in the Seine

The Seine, the scenic river running through Paris, has inspired artists, attracted tourists and served as the soul of the city, and now it will also be a source of renewable energy.  Paris officials have announced a plan to place river turbines beneath four bridges on the Seine. The Pont du Garigliano, Pont de la Tournelle, Pont Marie and Pont au Change will each have two turbines installed underwater at their base.  These bridges were chosen because the speed of the current accelerates in those locations.  While river currents don’t produce the kind of electricity that wave power can, the current-harvesting technology has come a long way and more devices are being introduced that can generate energy from even the slowest moving waters . City officials have put a call out to power companies to come up with the best plan for installing the turbines, with a winner being chosen in January and installations starting next spring.
