|| Utilizing potentials from small hydro power for sustainable energy supply in Sub-Saharan Africa is still very limited. The overall installed hydro power capacity in Africa is 20.3 GW. Small hydro power accounts for only about 1% (228 MW). Only 0.5% of the worldwide small hydro power capacity is installed in Africa (for comparison: Asia 68%). Generally, the promotion of small hydro power is considered a low priority on policy level and within the context of national energy strategies. The article summarizes the paper titled, Policy and Regulatory Framework Conditions for Small Hydro Power in Sub-Saharan Africa.
