Details

This report outlines the results of questionnaire survey of water companies, which reveals great differences in current and planned renewable energy generation between companies. Water-only companies are limited to hydropower and wind power, and have struggled to set up these energy sources due to funding problems, planning uncertainty and lack of incentives.
