Small Hydro Programme

The state of Kerala has a large untapped potential for Small Hydro Power generation.  ANERT has identified this as a thrust area of activity for the coming years and has initiated activities to mobilise potential developers of SHP in the State. 

Orientation training for selected Local Self Government Institutions, who are the possible developers of stand alone SHP projects in remote rural areas, was conducted.  A detailed training on technical aspects of SHP development was also organised to equip ANERT Engineers by Alternate Hydro Energy Centre, IIT Roorkee. 

Recently another 2 day program on 'water mills' was conducted for the Panchayat & ANERT officials selected from identified areas where they can be used.  The target for power generation from SHP sector in 11th plan period is 107 MW.  Two microhydel plants of 10kW each have been completed by ANERT at Waynad district.
