National Training Workshop on Micro Hydro Power Units in Leh, Ladakh

The Ladakh Ecological Development Group (LEDeG) in collaboration with Bremen Overseas Research & Development Association (BORDA), Germany has been promoting environmental friendly Decentralised Renewable Energy Systems (DERES) for the past 20 years in the Western Himalayas. So far 57 Community-based Micro Hydro Power Units (CMHPU) have been installed by LEDeG in extreme and isolated mountainous regions.

Micro Hydro Power has tremendous potential to solve the rural electrication problems in India in a decentralized manner.
