Water power can be utilized in numerous ways; tidal flows can be used to generate power by building a barrage across an
estuary and discharging water in a controlled and systematic manner by a turbine; large dams accumulate water, which
can be utilized to provide ample quantities of power; wave power is also harnessed in different ways. It is a method that
has been in use throughout the world, by a diverse range of cultures and societies. Water can be harnessed from small to
large hydro electric plants.
In United Kingdom, water mills are in use for the past 900 years. Their numbers grew rapidly and by the end of 19th
century, there were over 20,000 water mills in operation in England itself. In Europe, Asia and few parts of Africa, water
wheels were utilized to propel various industrial machineries, such as mills and pumps. First effective water turbine
appeared in the middle of 19th century and they started replacing water wheels in various applications. In contrast to the
water wheels and turbines, modern turbines are small, highly efficient and are capable of running at high speed.
Hydropower is a reliable technology, relying on non -polluting, renewable and indigenous resource, which can easily
integrate with irrigation and water supply projects all across the globe. Of the total, china constitutes more than 85,000
small-scale, electricity generating hydropower plants.

In the last decade, there has been a growing realization in emerging economies in which micro - hydro schemes have
played an important role in the economic development of remote rural areas, especially mountains. Micro hydro schemes
can generate power for domestic, agricultural and industrial uses through direct mechanical power or by the coupling the
turbine to a generator to develop electricity.
In order to determine the power potential of the water flowing in a river it is important to determine both the flow rate of
the water and the head by which the water can be made to fall. The flow rate is the amount of water flowing past a point
in a specific time. Generally, flow rate units are liters per second. The head is the vertical height measured in meters from
the turbine up to the point, where the water enters the penstock.
However, some amount energy is always lost when it is transformed from one form to another. Small water turbines
hardly have efficiencies more than 75%. Power will also be wasted in the pipe carrying the water to the turbine, due to
some frictional losses. By a systematic design, this loss can be lower down to a small percentage. A rough guide used for
small systems of a few kW rating is utilized to take the overall efficiency as approximately as 45%. Hence, the theoretical
power has to be multiplied by 0.50 for more accurate results.
Growing population and developing economies are some of the key drivers of the micro hydroelectric generator market.
However, limited exposure regarding micro hydroelectric generators can hinder the growth of the market. Ample
opportunities are there for the micro hydroelectric generator market owing to rapid industrialization taking place in Asia
Pacific countries such as India and China.
Some of the key companies in the business of Micro hydroelectric generator market are Rainbow Power Company Ltd,
Brownell Micro Hydro, Hebden Bridge Alternative Technology Centre Ltd., Canyon Industries, Inc., Addnew Technologies
Limited, Alps Power Technologies (P) Limited and Addnew Technologies Limited among others.
