Climate Smart Small-Scale Hydro Power Plants provides empirical guidance to practitioners seeking to optimize the design and adapt the operation of small hydro power plants (SHPPs) to reflect the growing threats posed by climate change. The work opens by reviewing the current position, practice and impacts of SHPP as part of a diversifying sustainable energy mix threatened by the uncertain vagaries of climate change - including violent flooding, inconsistent rain fall, poor catchment management, and water flow rises. The book collectively presents an argument for 'climate smart' SHPP planning and design which integrates qualitative and quantitative climate-change context-sensitive aspects into the design of SHPP systems, anchored in technical rigor, specialized simulation modelling, financial prudence, and environmental impact assessments. Chapters review practical examples of hydro-ecological regimes where small hydro power plants play a vital component in the overall energy mix, focusing on social, ecological and economic dimensions of safeguarding, key policies and operational practices. These case studies are used to assess progress and future steps in achieving SHPP climate smart systems, blending comparative review, integration and analysis. The work concludes by elaborating policy lessons, outlining pathways to mitigate risk for future systems. Explains how to adapt small hydro power systems to mitigate climate change using climate smart approaches Guides policymakers to discount climate change impacts when formulating environmental policies for SHPP systems Blends ecological, economic and social considerations in developing hydroecological solutions

Hydropower is found to be one of the most reliable and inexpensive options for renewable energy which was now widely been adopted by many countries to substitute fossil fuel sources. This Brief highlights the impact of climate change on hydropower plants, especially on the turbine design, as turbines are responsible for optimal conversion and regular energy production. The vulnerability of turbines is analyzed with the help of Artificial Neural Networks, followed by Multi Criteria Decision Making methods for development of

The future of China, India and Asia’s other emerging economies and their ability to take a ‘low-carbon’ and ‘climate-resilient’ development path determine the future of global carbon emissions and climate change. Indeed, the battle to confront global climate change will be won or lost in Asia. The transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy (LCE), which involves many steps towards improved energy efficiency, alternative energy sources and transport systems, sustainable land use, eco-friendly consumption and proactive adaptation, may be regarded

Energy policy is at a crossroads. Attempts to meet targets for carbon emissions, energy security and affordable energy for vulnerable households are all on a trajectory to failure. Aggressive ambitions to roll out huge off-shore wind, nuclear and clean coal plants are proposed, but without any clear plans on how funds will be mobilized, or transmission and distribution infrastructure developed. In this book Prashant Vaze and Stephen Tindale ask politicians and regulators to consider a different path. Using abundant examples
