Abstract. This report discusses some examples of the implementation of the world’s most common artificial and natural methods for converting hydrosphere energy. Most of them were discovered long ago, but until recently they were practically not used for energy production due to the complexity of implementation and low economic efficiency. Currently, these restrictions are gradually being removed. The current level of technological development allows us to successfully overcome most of these difficulties.

Key words: energy, hydrosphere, renewable energy, water resources
