Hi All,

Pleased you are enjoying the book - and yes it does cover hydro. In fact it covers all technologies appropriate for community owned renewable energy plants and a fair bit more besides. It covers hydro in a broad sense - looking at the scale of hydro projects around the world - which are often pretty unsustainable, then it gives a series of pointers and guidance for developing community owned hydro resources. We tried to do it on our local river and it can be a pretty complex process.

Keep the questions coming!

Howard
