Abstract: This paper evaluates the potential of mini-hydro applied to an existing or a new pipeline design. High pressure pipelines may have special installations installed on it, to extract energy from the outlet side. This is demonstrated for a specific installation at the sewage treatment plant of Ta' Barkat, Malta. The paper also presents an economic plan and summarises the regulations and incentives that are adopted in Italy and Europe in the area of mini-hydro.
