At a hydro power plant:
(a) kinetic energy possessed by stored water is converted into electrical energy.
(b) electricity is extracted from water.
(c) water is converted into steam to turn turbines and produce electricity.
(d) potential energy possessed by stored water is converted into electricity.
(d) potential energy possessed by stored water is converted into electricity
A hydropower plant first converts the stored energy of the water, i.e the potential energy into kinetic energy by making them fall on the turbines. The rotation of the turbines connected to a generator (mechanical energy) generates electricity (electrical energy).
