The objective of the Stream Map is to create a Roadmap for the future of the small hydropower sector with a view of the 20% targets set in the Renewable Energy Sources (RES) Directive by:
Creating a central database, HYDI, which will compile the relevant information on hydropower for the EU-27 as from 2007 on an annual basis.
Analysing the current status of the sector.
Drawing recommendations for the future development of the sector.
Influencing National Renewable Energy Action Plans on the RES mix.
Offering regular advice and information as local and natiional level on the sector development and needs.
Details of the project and its results to date can be found here along with a stream map brochure
