COMMON GUIDELINES FOR THE USE OF SMALL HYDROPOWER IN THE ALPINE REGION
The present guidelines on the use of small hydropower include common principles and recommendations, an outline for an assessment procedure as well as a pool of evaluation criteria. However, no concrete methodology is proposed since sufficient flexibility for implementation of the guidelines is needed in order to pay attention to regional differences and varying national boundary conditions. To underpin the guidelines, Good Practice Examples with concrete methodologies are presented in the Annex.
