The South East Europe (SEE) Hydropower project has been developed to find a way forward for all water users and balance energy demands with environmental and flooding considerations in Southeast European countries. The project is based on the European Directive on the Promotion of Electricity from Renewable Energy Sources (RES-e). The three-year project started in June 2009 and is financed by the South-East Transnational Cooperation Program of the European Union. Competition between water users is becoming a serious problem, and there is a strong need for more accurate planning and management to optimize resources. HaltFlood is a tool to support the operation of hydropower reservoirs for flood attenuation. VAPIDRO ASTE is a GIS integrated tool to calculate hydropower potential and identify promising small hydro plant sites, through the evaluation and management optimization of water availability, considering geodetic head in the territory.
