This training is designed to provide skills to the developers, engineers and all that have interest in Small/Mini/Micro hydropower projects development in Uganda.
The development of small hydropower around the world is on the increase. Small hydro offers a wide range of benefits especially for rural areas and developing countries. Governments, financiers, and developers are finding new ways to fund and promote small hydropower development. Efforts are also being made to improve the exchange of ideas and technology related to small hydropower.
Installed Small hydropower stations throughout the world contribute about 78GW which represents 36% of the total small hydro power potential of 217 GW.
In Uganda, small hydropower up to 10 MW capacities also includes the mini-and-micro hydro power projects, which are mostly confined to local use. A potential of over 210 MW has been identified from small hydropower and the Government of Uganda has been according priority to SHP development as thrust area.
The participants will be provided an insight to SHP, site selection potential assessment, planning and design of civil works, selection of E&M equipment etc.
