Abstract

The technical and economic feasibility of the installation of a mini-hydroelectric power plant on El Valle River in Venezuela is assessed. Special attention is paid to modeling Venezuela’s energy and economic scenarios. Sensitivity, risk, and emission analyses are also carried out. The results of the study show very attractive economic indicators, such as a 280.3% internal rate of return and a 0.4 years payback period. The positive results of the study are an indication that clean energy could find very fertile scenarios in countries such as Venezuela, where the advantages of their application may not be evident.
