ESHA, in the scope of the RESTOR Hydro project, issued the Small and Micro Hydropower Restoration Handbook, All-Inclusive Replicable Model.
This document provides you with a practical guideline that includes:
- Detailed information on the technical permitting process aiming at reducing the perceived financial risk of the unknown requirements that may stop, delay or derail a project.
- Best technical options for the refurbishment of historical waterwheels/mills will be defined together with information on civil and environmental engineering, electrical and mechanical engineering, operations and maintenance. Best environmental solutions are proposed.
- Comprehensive information describing how to fund small and micro hydro-power. Different funding options are explored and analyses of benefits and risks presented.
