Hydromatch Ltd worked with Monmouthshire County Council to identify potential hydropower sites in the county. There are several stages to this process:
- A desktop study of the region incorporating Environment Agency data and OS map data to identify sites with potential combined head and flow resource. Over 60 proposed sites were identified for further investigation.
- Meeting with representatives of the council to discuss preferred sites and local considerations.
- Site visits to 15 possible sites to take flow and head measurements and identify limiting factors.
- Feasibility studies for site worthy of further investigations.
Please get in touch if you are interested in discussing a similar scoping study or know of a potential hydropower opportunity which you think should be considered in Monmouthshire.
