It is clear that society worldwide must start to mitigate its environmental damage instantly in order to sustain life on Earth. In this regard, researchers all over the globe are exploring new energy efficient alternatives to power everything from cell phones to cars. The energy consumption rate around the world is rising day by day. On the other hand, conventional sources of energy are being finished up rapidly. There is an uncertainty about the energy security around the world. The crisis of energy can be minimized by utilizing the renewable sources of energy in a decent way. A latest manner of renewable energy recovery is reflected by Cross-Flow Hydro Turbine (HYDRO-TURBINE). It is a floating type turbine that can float in water and produce energy. The main objective of this experiment is to produce green energy using a small water turbine and to make it floatable. Usually, hydroelectric power plants are very large in size and space consuming. It is very often not likely possible to create large dam in several places for developing countries such as Bangladesh. On the other hand, Micro Hydro Floating Turbines can be the best solution to all these obstacles. Cross-Flow Hydro Turbine generates electricity by using water flow or water tide. It floats on water and creates electricity when the turbine is rotating.
