Abstract

To sustain their impressive economic growth and to provide electricity for the two most populated states, PR China and India are aggressively developing their energy sector. Regenerative energy, mainly hydropower, plays a key role in their present and future energy sector strategy. The speed of hydropower development shows a dimension which is unique worldwide. This extreme rapid development is mainly based on controversial large dams, but also on the fast development of small scaled hydropower projects.
