  • Government report: Uruguay has close to 300 MW in small hydro potential

    Uruguay has about 276 MW of potential small hydro capacity, according to a study released by the country's energy and mining ministry.

    The study found that the 50 best sites for plants with less than 10 MW capacity showed a total potential of 101 MW, Business News Americas reported.

    Slightly larger hydropower projects, between 10 MW and 15 MW, showed potential of 176MW.

    The country's power matrix is dominated by large hydro, which makes up 61 percent of total power capacity, and currently does not receive any power from mini hydroelectric plants, according to wire reports.

    Authorities aim to have 50 percent of electricity come from clean sources by 2015.
