Development of Mini-Hydropower Plants

Project Summary

The proposed project would assist the Government of FYR Macedonia in reducing emissions of carbon dioxide by substituting hydropower for lignite based thermal generation. Specifically, the proposed GEF grant would cover the agreed incremental costs of three mini hydropower plants to be installed on the water supply systems of the towns of Kavadarci, Sturga and Derbar by independent power producers. In order to mainstream the reforms initiated under the Bank financed Power System Improvement Project, the proposed operation would also serve as a model for establishing the necessary power off-take arrangements.
