Planning permission has been granted for a micro-hydro power scheme in Sheffield, England. Thousands of similar sites are earmarked for hydro development across the UK. Developers and politicians are overlooking the serious damage the schemes can cause to fragile river habitats and are supporting schemes that generate only tiny amounts of energy in a misguided rush to all things renewable. This film looks at the Kelham Island site on the river Don in Sheffield and highlights the broader ecological concerns that are being thrown aside.
