Abstract

In the project SMART (Strategies to promote small scale hydro electricity production in Europe) from the programme IEE (Intelligent Energy Europe) 7 institutions from 5 European states participate: Province of Cremona – Italy ; CESI RICERCA SPA – Italy ; Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb – Croatia ; Karlovac Regional Authority – Croatia ; Norwegian University of Science and Technology – Norway ; Regional Secretariat of Attica - Greece and Energieagentur Waldviertel – Austria. The SMART proposal address to the complexity of the legal/administrative processes to obtain concessions and the economical/financial attraction of private investitors. One of the main objective of the project SMART is to give clear contributions to pull down these non-technological barriers, as helpful tools for European, national, regional and local authority decision-makers for increasing the implementation of small-scale hydro electricity plants (SHP) on their own territory. Therefore in this paper the results of investigations performed with aim to detection and pull down these non-technological barriers in partner states (Italy, Croatia, Norway, Greece and Austria) will be presented. Investigations include: • analysis of inalienable principles regarding the right to use water ; • analysis of the normatives about SHP ; • analysis of environmental and administrative procedures ; • critical review of the different regulations (weak and strong points, most important conflicts linked to the use of water). In conclusion of the paper strategies to improve existing regulations (common methodology and tools) will be presented.
