Apparatus for generating electricity comprises a housing 1 which is fitted to an existing drainpipe of a building for locally generating electricity for use within the building. The housing comprises fitting brackets 3, 5 for providing a releasable seal with ends of a drainpipe so that the fluid flowing down the drainpipe flows within the housing 1 through a turbine 9 fitted within the housing 1 to rotate the driveshaft of an alternator fitted within the housing 1. The housing 1 is also provided with a closable drainage port to allow easy access to the housing 1 in the case of a blockage. The apparatus provides a local source of electricity for use within the building, for example, for heating water in a domestic hot water system or for re-charging batteries, e.g., batteries used for computer back-up.
