Developers looking for small hydro projects in India can now get help from a databank compiled by the Alternative Hydro Energy Centre (AHEC), a part of Roorkee University in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. The databank currently covers 13 sub-Himalayan states and has identified 2162 small hydro sites (below 3MW each) with a total hydro potential assessed at 3827MW (at 75% availability). The databank has been sent by AHEC to state governments with the aim of initiating action to develop projects.
