The Note gives a detailed discussion of the basics of SHP, the types of equipment, turbines and generators in use, the selection and assessment of suitable sites, planning and licensing requirements, financing, and economic justification. It includes a decision-making checklist and covers the environmental aspects and requirements for small hydroelectric projects, such as the provision of fish bypasses.
