Are there Feed-in Tariffs or grants available for hydro schemes?

Yes, there is a hydro Feed-in-Tariff – see more details here. There are no national grant schemes for hydropower systems, though there are sometimes regional grants that become available, particularly for Community Hydro Projects.

The best way to find grants is to search on the internet and ask the Sustainability Officer at your Local Authority, or contact your local energy advice centre.
