Welcome to the Small Hydro Gateway!

The Small Hydro Atlas has been redesigned.

The Small Hydro Gateway has been redesigned and updated to take full advantage of the benefits of the web. New features have been added including a comprehensive database of small hydro innovative technologies.


If you are involved in the small-hydro industry, we welcome your collaboration and invite you to register on the site. By registering you will have access to resources and information and we will be able to keep you updated on the activities of the IEA Hydropower Small Hydro Annex, our ongoing work and upcoming events.


Thank you. We hope you find the new Small-Hydro Gateway useful and informative!
