The application shows the outputs of the Hydropower Potential Exploration (HyPE) Model for the Upper Indus basin.
These maps show the outputs of the Hydropower Potential Exploration (HyPE) Model for the Upper Indus basin. The HyPE model was developed in the SustainIndus project to evaluate the theoretical, technical, financial and sustainable potential. The potential has been evaluated under various policy choices regarding hydropower development scale, hazard risk aversion and considerations for sustainability. The achievable hydropower potential of the upper Indus is much smaller than the theoretical potential when technical, economic and most importantly sustainable constraints are accounted for.
