Small Hydro Power
Water power is harmonized with natural conditions such as topography and climate, and has a large potential for domestic existence, so it has a high energy density, enabling a steady supply of power compared to other energy sources.
The Korean government has decided to raise the target of supplying new & renewable energy by 11% by 2030 through a basic plan for developing and using new & renewable energy technologies.
Among them, Small Hydro Power is possible wherever water is, not only in rivers and lakes, but also in comprehensive sewage treatment plant, water supply, agricultural reservoirs, and air-conditioning facilities in buildings, and there seems to be more room for development due to the nature of Korea, which has many mountainous areas.
The potential for this Small Hydro Power is about 1,500 MW.
