A guide for development workers
Guides the reader systematically through the basic methods of hydrology and site survey and describes how to set up an appropriate scheme, with detailed technical information; also covers the essential economic considerations and maintenance requirements.
Peter Fraenkel is a mechanical engineer with long experience of renewable energy systems and the author of many books and articles on wind, hydro, and tidal energy. He is a leading authority on water pumping technologies for developing country applications and was a founder and Director of I.T. Power from 1981 to 2000.
Adam Harvey has worked for the micro-hydro programme of IT (now Practical Action) in Nepal and Sri Lanka and on training courses for engineers from developing countries. He holds a PhD from the University of Warwick in the field of renewable energy.
