The dataset includes hydropowers recognized on Google Earth. It is still under-construction. Major source for the dataset comes from WLE 2016 ( In addition, data and information has been collected from various online public websites.

There are three scales of hydropower: Small (< 30MW), Medium (30MW to 100 MW)
