Since 1996, the Small Hydro Power Industry has grown exponentially and as of year 2015, the installed capacity of the industry in Sri Lanka stands at 330 MW. This capacity growth is a result of the domestic entrepreneurship supported by the engineering skills of Sri Lanka's skilled work force. The growth has also resulted in exporting the technical excellence of the industry to other developing countries where Sri Lankan Small Hydro Power Developers are investing and empowering those emerging nations.
