In small hydropower generation, electricity is generated by rotating a “water turbine” using the flow of water. In general terms, a small hydropower plant is any hydropower plant that is less than 10,000kW.
Compared to solar and wind power generation, it is not affected by the weather and can be placed near areas where people are living. Also, because of its compact size, it has very little effect on the environment.

Small hydropower can be installed where there is a lot of water flow and there is a drop in height. As it can be installed in places familiar to us, the generated power can be used for purposes required in the area, such as river park facilities, agricultural processing facilities, and tourist facilities, in addition to selling electricity.

Benefits of Small Hydropower Generation

  • Electricity supplied is  unaffected by the season.

    Electricity supplied is unaffected by the season.

    Compared to solar and wind power, it can supply stable power regardless of seasonal fluctuations day and night.

  • Stable power output for base power supply.

    Stable power output for base power supply.

    Since the power output fluctuation is small, it can be used as a base power supply that operates constantly

  • Smaller footprint compared to other power generation methods

    Smaller footprint compared to other power generation methods

    Compared to other power generation methods, the required installation area is smaller, and the number of possible installation locations are much higher.
