    Planet of Earth Energy & Water Crisis. + One more optional idea for our future thinking.

    Dear Sir,

    The Subject matter is all over the World facing Energy & Water problems, So I am trying to Explain an idea for Old & New Dams / Reservoirs Hydro electric projects Civil Design Geometry Can be modifying in Architectural Transition to increase our energy potential. Because we are Losing heavy quantum of already storage
    water in our Big Dams and its relevant projects to generate Hydro Electric old technology, Now it must be need to convert into new theory of Scientific Technology as per utilizing in the way of experiment with foreign expertise at any Hydro electric base Model of
    concern Department or forum to finalize the following unique and entire world Global developing idea for its further implementations in the current ongoing and next coming future Hydroelectric & Water projects as soon as possible.

    Thanks.

    with best regards.

    Please Debates in future Energy Events / Forums / Exhibitions / Seminars / Conferences about subject idea for solving our entire World Energy Crisis as soon as possible.

    One more Optional idea for our future thinking.

    it is simple to start a intake water Chanel and drop to a low bed area to generate Hydroelectric Energy + other after-all we can utilize Sea or Ocean to canalize for entire world energy and agricultural requirements / necessaries because think tanks can be made easily
    Handel the subject matter.

    I hope think so.
