Does your region have the natural resources to exploit small hydropower?


Local hydropower sources can play an important role in the electrification of urban and rural areas.
A 10 MW plant could power an African town of 50,000 people.
Estimates of the untapped potential for small hydro plants in Africa range to over 60,000 MW, but only several hundred megawatts of capacity has been built.
The current interest by African governments – local and national, municipalities and international donors, development banks and the private sector – in increasing energy access in Africa’s rural communities will facilitate the uptake of this robust, environmentally friendly form of energy.
