Draft PPS18: Renewable Energy
Annex 1: Small Hydro
E1. Hydropower is well developed in Great Britain, where most sites with a potential greater than 1MW have already been developed. However, there is the potential for the development of sites in Northern Ireland in the range of 100kW (0.1MW) to 500kW (0.5MW), and the possibility for a few sites of up to 1MW, which could be economically developed as grid connected schemes. In addition, there are a larger number of locations where smaller, domestic scale schemes in the range 10kW to 50kW could be developed. This section deals with smaller hydro schemes of up to 1MW.
