To build a small green hydropower demonstration station shall follow the principle of meeting the ecological flow requirements. Besides, during the construction, the discharge facilities should be improved, and the ecological flow should be monitored. To ensure an effective ecological flow, the ecological dispatch operation should also be promoted, and the ecological flow management needs to be included in daily operation management.

A finished green small hydropower station should have a comprehensive surveillance and monitoring system of the ecological flow, which shall meet the relevant requirements of the department in charge. In the future, the green small hydropower station will be reviewed based on the actual ecological flow monitoring data if it needs to renew its expiry date.

To regulate the construction, the Ministry of Water Resources proposes provinces with conditions set up green small hydropower construction think tanks as a means of technical support for the job. Local governments should introduce policies with regional characteristics to support and guide the creation of large and small hydropower stations. What’s more, the provinces are recommended to build green small hydropower stations with rivers or county-level areas as a unit, for building up a group of green small hydropower station education bases.
