The article reports on the research commissioned by the government and done by the Forum for Renewable Energy Development regarding the viability of having hydro power schemes in Scotland. Researchers found that the country has the potential of having more than 1,000 more hydro power schemes. They also found that there is 657megawatts (MW) of financially viable hydro capacity in the country that can power 600,000 households.
