Hydropower plants in 2009 were providing almost 16.5% of the global electricity production which is equal to 3 329 TWh. This is around 85% of the total renewable electricity generation.These statistics are expected to increase as the governments and investors are now more into hydropower energy since its clean reliable and affordable. hydropower storage in reservoirs. When the production of electricity in a certain country becomes excessive the sluice gates of a dam can be shut down thus saving the water and storing the energy. the hydropower reservoirs are able to store the energy for years if not needed.
For that the developed a Giant duck on Dubai Creek to highlight water conservation. the government saved the rain water and installed water saving s devices installed especially in Abu Dhabi the government 2,100 water-saving devices installed. At that time the government launched water research centre. Solution for water scarcity There are several solution to water scarcity in UAE.

By having introduced the basic tools to the firm initially this transition is made easier at each stage. In the absence of a business assessment system, the firm entices the risk of becoming uncompetitive.

Each year, the world generates perhaps 5–10 billion tons of industrial waste, much of which is pumped untreated into rivers, oceans, and other waterways.  In the United States alone, around 400,000 factories take clean water from rivers, and many pump polluted waters back in their place. However, there have been major improvements in wastewater treatment recently. Since 1970, in the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has invested about $70 billion in improving water treatment plants that, as of 2015, serve around 88 percent of the US population (compared to just 69 percent in
