350 Hydro projects are classified as “small” or “micro” scale, ranging from less than 1kW to 1MW. The introduction of Feed-in tariffs in the UK has made it financially attractive to install small hydro-electric systems, particularly on sites with a height difference to exploit.
350 Hydro undertakes feasibility studies, scheme designs and project manages the installation of small or micro scale hydro-electric projects. We help clients understand the economics of potential sites and can provide the support necessary to obtain finance and take an opportunity from initial concept through to an operating site that generates low carbon electricity.
Where clients have good sites, but where they may wish to share the costs or risks associated with a development, 350 Energy may invest alongside the client in order to deliver a low risk, successful project.
