F. ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS

The expert-group on hydropower for the Nairobi-Conference stated that from all renewable energy-sources, existing hydropower ranks top as far as accessible know-how as well as its economy are concerned. This statement will be elaborated on here by using a multi-level cost-benefit-approach which will be applied on micro-hydro installations compared to larger hydro-structures and on micro-hydro installations compared to alternative energies.
