Historical approaches to water as renewable energy source
Rudăriei valley in Romania

The COST action TU1401 explores the impact of renewable energy sources on landscape quality. Yet in South-West Romania there is a cultural landscape featuring historical approaches in employing water power for mills which we reviewed in course of the action.

Watermill on Rudƒriei valley
In 2008 the Romanian Ministry of Culture organised a workshop to resort architecture in South-West Romania, and, in context of this, the mixed natural reservation of Rudăriei valley was visited. The mountain crossing of water here was used for a complex of water mills, which allow for using water energy without affecting the landscape - remarcable in this area through the ecologic habitat and biodiversity.
