Small Hydro Power – The Future of Hydro-power?

Came across a useful article on small hydro power, am providing the excerpts:

1. Typically, a small hydro power project generates less than 25 MW (megawatts) per project.
2. Building larhe hydro power projects has to overcome a number of problems – local impact, environmental issues, relocation of the population, and more. These factors do not hamper small hydro projects significantly.
3. In India, in a number of states, small hydro projects are being implemented though a private-public participation
4. Small hydro projects’ gestation period and costs are decreasing with time
5. SHPs can reduce transmission costs since most of these will be set up to supply a local region. They can also help in reducing flooding of downstream areas and provide employment opportunities to local population.
6. They generate clean power at low production costs.
7. The scope for large hydro project is likely to decrease steadily, with the building of more and more such plants. It is more likely that small hydro power plants could be most value adding in the long run, and at some point of time, they might be the only alternative available within the hydro-power domain.

One Response to “Small Hydro Power – The Future of Hydro-power?”

  1. SmallHydro Says:

    It is an interesting fact that there is a serious amount of additional energy that we could bring on-line. We can only do this if we put our minds to the approval of more small hydro and micro hydro generating systems. We have to work together to streamline what has become a barrier of state and federal regulations though.
