Project Description
The development and adaptation of technologies for small hydropower turbines is highly required under the actual conditions and circumstances. This development has to respect the environmental restrictions. In this project both ideas and patents in the field of small hydropower plants will be investigated and subjected from a plausibility check to the physical models. Thereby Thuringian institutions will cooperate with institutions from Norway, Poland and Austria. The aim is the exploitation of the potential of the utilization of small-hydropower plants in the low mountain range. As result of the project, four locations were identified and recommended for a small hydropower plant.
