Small is beautiful - a practical approach to electricity generation

Thanks to its geography and an abundance of water, hydroelectric power has historically been the backbone of renewable energy generation in Austria.

What are the challenges of running a small hydro operation in a competitive environment like the European power grid? On a technical level, what hinders the transition towards a fully sustainable future? How does climate change already affect the industry?

Since its invention in 2010, a peer-to-peer computer network is buying increasing amounts of electrical energy in exchange for its native, digital currency Bitcoin. How and why does that work? What implications might this have for a 'smart' power grid?
