Final Report - HYLOW (Hydropower converters with very low head differences)

Project ID: 212423
Funded under: FP7-ENERGY

Abstract

The HYLOW project was funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and aimed to develop novel hydropower converters for three different applications, namely run-of-river projects with very low head differences, exploitation of river currents and production of energy in water supply systems.

This final activity report presents the project background and states its objectives. It also analyses the methodology that was implemented and provides a detailed description of the modelling activities and the developed prototypes' tests. Moreover, the document summarises the undertaken environmental and economic assessment of the proposals, and closes with an overview of HYLOW's potential impact. The report is accompanied by a series of figures and tables that highlight the project innovations and the derived conclusions.
