ANNEX II - SMALL-SCALE HYDROPOWER (Completed 2017)
IEA Hydro's Annex II on Small-Scale Hydropower was active from 1995-2017 in several areas.
- Assessment tools & methodologies, financing, economic risk & sensitivity analysis and more
- Analysis of government policies & experiences, what works & what doesn’t
- Providing a forum for the exchange of small-hydro data through this website
- Providing information on state-of-art technologies for the development of small hydro projects
TASK A1: SMALL HYDRO INTERNATIONAL GATEWAY
In 2012 the task force on Small-Scale Hydropower (Annex II) launched its Small Hydro International Gateway to facilitate the development of new small hydro projects.
As of 31 May 2017 the Small Hydro International Gateway closed, with small hydro resources integrated into the IEA Hydro website and now accessed via the links from this page.
