Potential of small hydropower plants in Switzerland

The geodata product ‘Potential of small hydropower plants in Switzerland’ is the result of a GIS-based analysis carried out in 2012 as part of the research project 102835 ‘Survey of Switzerland's small hy-dropower plant potential’. This calculated the theoretical hydroelectric potential of all natural water-courses in Switzerland. As only part of the theoretical potential can actually be used for electricity generation when technical, ecological, economic and legal aspects are taken into account, it is im-portant to interpret the statements on theoretical potential correctly. Both the geodata model documentation and the research project final report should be consulted.
