Small hydropower gives a higher return on investment due to the low capital investment and operational and maintenance costs. Small hydropower plants are easier to construct as the designs are simpler and hence the costs are lower as well. China is the largest market for small hydropower in the world. The small hydropower market in China is driven by rural electrification programs of the Chinese government. Issues with regulatory bodies are leading to a delay in small hydropower plant approvals and this has become a major challenge for the future development of small hydropower.
