Welcome to the HydroCalculator. With the tool, you can perform a basic analysis of the economic feasibility of hydro projects as well as calculating some simple environmental and social indicators that can be compared to those of other dams. Sign in or register now to create a new analysis, or clone one of the existing analyses if you want to analyze the same project. Following is a list of projects already analyzed. You can use the Filter to search for specific projects. Please give us feedback so we can improve the tool. Thank you!

Disclaimer: HydroCalculator analyses are based entirely on users' assumptions; Conservation Strategy Fund does not endorse the results. We hope that the tool will open an objective debate of hydroelectric power options.
