PAPERS AND REPORTS

STATUS OF SMALL HYDRO POWER IN INDIA

Himachal Pradesh has a potential of about 25000 MW of exploitable hydro potential in five river basins. This includes about 2000 MW in small / mini / Micro hydel potential up to 5.0 MW capacities, as estimated by HIMURJA, out of 492 Micro Hydro Power Projects allotted in BOOT basis to private investors till date. Being environment friendly source of energy, Govt of India / Govt of Himachal Pradesh has encouraged participation of private sector in a big way, with renewed set of incentives for its exploitation. 

In H.P, around 20% hydro-power has been explored, which mainly consists of medium and big size projects. The slow exploration of hydro power potential is due to the facts that large size hydropower development involves many socio-economic issues environmental/ecological considerations, fund requirement, large gestation periods, etc. However many of these issues become irrelevant in the context of Small hydro power projects. Small hydro projects can be developed economically today by adopting simplified standardized designs. Further their small gestation period, low investment requirements, absence of major socio-economic issues are attractive features. Small hydro power not only investment-friendly, but also can promote rural development in the most viable way. 

Considerable enthusiasm has been created by these inherent features of SHP. Recognizing the opportunities provided to the private sector participants World Bank has also come forward with a line of credit under the “Indian Renewable Energy development Projects” for financing small Hydel projects. To further promote Private sector Participation in small Hydro Power Project, Himachal Pradesh Energy Development Agency (HIMURJA) also invited private entrepreneurs for investigation & setting-up small Hydropower Project in H.P. for self-identified sites. Govt. has entrusted the task of implementation of self-identified Small hydroelectric projects to the private sector on Build, Own, and Operate and Transfer (BOOT) basis. With all these support we understand that HP is most suitable for setting up a Small Hydro Power plant in present conditions.
