Small Hydropower (SHP) offers an efficient, emission-free renewable source of electricity which can be used off-grid as well as on-grid. Small hydro is often constructed using existing dams or built with the flow of river known as run of river. Typically, SHP systems consist of transformers, generators, turbines, and reservoirs. Small hydropower plants are ideal for rural areas where there is no electricity infrastructure, such as transmission and distribution lines. Hydroelectric energy is the cleanest form of renewable generation as it does not release any harmful gases, carbon dioxide, and other pollutants which directly or indirectly affect the environment. It has no international denomination and its upper limit varies from country to country. For example, in Canada it ranges up to 50 MW and in Brazil it ranges up to 30 MW; however, 10 MW total capacity is generally accepted worldwide. Capacity utilization and plant load factor for small hydropower plants are high when compared to other renewable sources of energy.
