Renewable Energy


With the world now moving away from unfriendly conventional fuels and towards cleaner energy sources as one, hydropower and its important role in being one of the largest sources of renewable energy in Sri Lanka has come in to play. Hydro power involves capturing the kinetic energy of flowing water and turning it into electricity. The global demand for energy is on a steep rise, and so is the demand for hydropower in Sri Lanka. Hayleys Aventura is setting out to bridge the gap in Sri Lanka’s power supply shortfall by making use of a renewable source that the country has been abundantly blessed with; water.
