Thematic Network On Small Hydro Power

Objective

The Thematic Network on SHP aims to address a number of obstacles to the use of small hydropower in order to enable a fuller exploitation of this indigenous resource. The network will promote discussion and information exchange between the major stakeholders of SHP focused on achieving the following targets:
-Reduction of costs of both new as well as refurbishment of existing SHP plants
-Reduction of costs of "environmental" equipment (fish ladders, water ways etc.)
-Creation of a dialogue between SHP developers and environmentalists
-Ensuring that the White Paper target for an additional installed capacity in the field of SHP of 4500MW by 2010 is reached and exceeded,
-Seeking public acceptability for SHP projects
