map shows the untapped potential of hydroelectric power that would be technically
possible. Each value concerns one federal state and refers to its entire area.
A substantial further potential exists, particularly in Baden-Württemberg, and
also, to a smaller extent, in the other federal states of southern and central
Germany. Hydroelectric power naturally plays only a minor role in the flat regions
adjoining the North Sea and the Baltic.
The values are based
on figures which are published on the Internet by "Internationales Wirtschaftsforum
Regenerative Energien" (IWR). For the map the difference was determined between
the potential technically possible and the potential currently exploited. The
values represent this difference divided by the area of the federal state. The
unit of measurement is explained in the glossary (MWh/km²a).
