Hydropower For You - Sustainable small-scale hydropower in Central Asia

Project description

Big plans for Europe’s small-scale hydropower technology

Small-scale hydropower (SHP) has been used to generate electricity since the end of the 19th century. Usually installed in small rivers or streams, it is versatile, cost-efficient, and has minimal impact on wildlife and ecosystems. Despite considerable potential to satisfy unmet electricity demand, SHP is not extensively exploited in Central Asia. The EU-funded Hydro4U project will adapt European SHP technologies to meet Central Asia’s needs. Specifically, it will install and assess two demo plants with reduced planning and construction costs that do not compromise efficiency. The overall aim is to find innovative solutions that are fit-for-purpose and to demonstrate EU quality standards and create entry points in developing markets for the entire European SHP industry.
