Broad analyses are a useful and inexpensive means both for owners of decommissioned facilities and for other initiators of projects to examine the feasibility of small hydropower plant projects.
The best way to proceed is to take a look at fact sheets 1 to 3, then to discuss your project with the programme head, who will be able to assist you with the submission of your application for support (objectives, timeframe, budget, etc.).
