Practical Action aimed to promote the long-term use of certain existing MHPs via a holistic approach called Participatory Market System Development (PMSD). This approach emphasises stakeholder participation in creating sustainable rural enterprises and empowering marginalised market actors.
Five existing micro-hydro projects (three in Nepal and two in Odisha state, India) ranging from 14 kW to 100 kW in capacity, saw their MHPs serviced and refurbished. Moreover, additional demand for power was created by establishing 21 new enterprises, ranging from mills for rice and wheat to construction businesses.
