This project aims to install a 10 kW low-head Micro-Hydro Plant (MHP) along a riverside, generating power for a nearby school
Baiturrahman is a well-known Islamic boarding school in Ciparay, a rural area in southern Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. One of the school's missions is to use renewable energy resources to generate its electricity. The school already uses biogas for cooking and lighting. To generate more electricity, this project plans to harness the existing hydro potential of the river next to the school by implementing an innovative low-head micro-hydro plant (MHP). It is anticipated that the power generated from the 5 kW plant will be enough to operate the school's water pump, which provides clean water for the boarding school.
To promote the exchange of knowledge and sharing of experiences between practitioners involved in small-scale hydroelectric projects
This exchange activity aims to nurture knowledge exchange between multi-actors for grid-connected micro hydro technology across the region of South and Southeast Asia and to enable members of the Hydro Empowerment Network (HPNET) to operate renewable energy technologies apart from the national grid.
IESR aims to build an understanding of their participatory approach to designing energy services in Southeast Asia called the "Energy Delivery Model" (EDM).
This exchange activity aimed to increase the capacity of local engineers and technicians to deal with electronic load controller operation and maintenance
