The program will last 5 years and during this time, the small hydropower plants are expected to generate 365,000 MWh of electricity and avoid 874,200 tons of C02. As a first step, actions are already being taken to overcome the existing barriers to the development of off-grid and grid-connected small hydropower plants.<ref name="http://www.aler-renovaveis.org/en/communication/news/promoting-renewable-energy-for-small-hydro-in-sao-tome-and-principe/">http://www.aler-renovaveis.org/en/communication/news/promoting-renewable-energy-for-small-hydro-in-sao-tome-and-principe/</ref>
