SHPP, for most parts, are constructed with already existing dams, as they do not require huge facilities or infrastructure. On these grounds, small hydropower industry is likely to grow significantly in the emerging economies and countries with less capital. Asia Pacific led the global landscape of small hydropower market in 2014, with an installation capacity of more than 80 GW, subject to the rising necessity of electricity supply in the rural areas and the growing awareness regarding environmental safety. With China, Japan, and India as the key contributors, APAC small hydropower industry is forecast to generate significant revenue by 2024. Vietnam is also expected to grow significantly over the years ahead, with a CAGR of 6.5%, thereby contributing toward the regional revenue share. One of the key reasons attributed toward the development of small hydropower market in this region is the favorable natural environment, i.e., presence of rivers with a length of more than 9 km and dense rivers split into more than 2000 streams.

SHPs are constructed within the river flow (run of river scheme) or are already integrated in the existing water infrastructure. The former scheme is suitable for areas that do not require electric infrastructure. The generated power is transferred by the power house to a transformer, that transmits power to the chosen destination.
