Researchers harnesss the energy of moving seawater used to cool a power plant

A team of scientists from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak has found a way to recover energy from an outflow of seawater used for cooling a power plant in Seijingkat, Malaysia. As the hot water flows from the plant, it creates an artificial waterfall. The team has developed and tested a hanging hydropower-generating system that was custom-designed for use at this sensitive site to recover energy from the artificial waterfall.
