Promotional Information

'This book's strength is that it is based on years of experience out in the field of designing micro hydro systems that work.' Dr Arthur Williams, School of Electrical Electronic Engineering, The University of Nottingham, UK. 'For remote communities lucky enough to live near hill streams or rivers, micro-hydro power is the most cost effective way of generating electricity. And it is clean energy. But it takes years of experience and skill to design the weirs, canals and spillways that are needed. Experienced practitioners take you through the whole design process, with drawings and calculations, so that anyone with good practical building skills can learn enough from the many years of knowledge crammed into this instruction book to build a solid scheme, without over-spending.' Ray Holland, Manager, EU Energy Initiative, Partnership Dialogue Facility

"The power of water hasn't caught on in the national level, but can be invaluable to certain communities. Designing and Building Mini and Micro Hydropower Schemes: A Practical Guide is a collection of advice for those who are pursuing this sort of power for their community. Ideal for remote communities that are far from the traditional power of the modern day, these works can provide enough power for small communities, with materials and manpower that can be acquired locally. Ideal for anyone who is in charge of managing public works for their community, Designing and Building Mini and Micro Hydropower Schemes is a vital addition to any engineering or power management collection."-- (11/01/2011)
