KWKW.opt® - Optimising the energy efficiency of small hydro power stations

Under the umbrella of Austrian research programme NEW ENERGIES 2020 we have been awarded a grant for our software projekt “KWKW.opt® – optimisation of the energy efficiency of small hydro power stations”.

The software is designed to provide a simple standard method for calculating the optimisation potential of existing small hydro power stations.

Using a systematic procedure, it provides operators of small hydro power stations with a cost-effective means of analysing their station‘s improvement potential. All data are stored in a database for future reference.

This project is supported by the Austrian Climate Change and Energy Fund and carried out under the umbrella of the “New Energies 2020” programme.
