The largest development of hydropower in Europe took place over the last century, harnessing most of the large hydropower potential on the continent. Nonetheless, new hydropower plants are still under development. Several hydropower plants in Europe are under construction (278) and many more are planned to be constructed (8 507). Especially, the Balkans and Turkey have ambitious plans to significantly raise their hydropower exploitation (WWF, 2019). Also, in other parts of Europe, there is an increasing number of applications for new hydropower plants, especially small ones up to 10 MW. For example, in Italy, there are more than 500 requests for new hydropower plants of 1 MW and in Scotland, there have been more than 700 applications for new hydropower development in the last 15 years (Bussettini, 2019; Fyfe, 2019).
