The hydropower of the Carpathian Basin was first utilised by mills for grinding cereals in the 11th century. More sophisticated power machines, such as the pumps used in mines, lumber mills, forge mills and other machinery of this type, first appeared in the 13th century and were perfected from the 15th-16th centuries. The industrial potential of hydropower, estimated at 2.7 million hp at the turn of the 19th-20th century, was principally exploited in the Carpathians. The study gives an overview of the utilisation of hydropower in the Carpathian Basin and in Hungary. - (AM)
