Since the founding of the People's Republic of China over 50 years ago,and particularly since the country's opening up and reform period, theChinese government has been stressing the development of SHP, small hydropowera clean, renewable energy which plays a significant role in supplying energy for both rural production and daily life, poverty alleviation, environmental improvement, promotion of the local economy and social progress.
In the past 20 years, the attention given to hydropower and rural electrification by the world community has also been increasing. A number of international conferenees, including the World Summit on Sustainable Developmentheld in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2002 and the Third World Water Forumheld in Kyoto, Japan in March 2003, have appealed for more utilization of allrenewable energy sources, including hydropower. A new era of greater development for this thriving green energy has come.
