Feasibility study on Potential Power Capacity Assessment for Ultra-Low Head Micro Hydropower Sites in Ethiopia
NTT Data Institute of Management Consulting Inc,  Govt. of Japan
Team Leader
School of Earth Sciences, Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia
Nov. 2013 to Feb. 2014
The study was an effort to explore and assess the potential for ultra-low head micro hydro schemes in the country. The study was conducted to assess potential for natural streams as well as for irrigation canal systems.
