Number of hydro energy generating plants in the United Kingdom (UK) 2003-2018

The United Kingdom is home to 1,559 hydropower plants. Between 2003 and 2018, numbers had increased more than fivefold. Hydropower has been a source of electricity generation since the late 19th century, but has particularly gained in importance following growing awareness of the negative effects of fossil fuel burning. With the UK government pledging to become carbon neutral by 2050, hydropower may help reach that goal.
