Title: Development Plan of a Sustainable Micro Hydro Power Plant and Distribution System for Tribal Village Cluster in Rural India

Columbia University students, alonge with their NGO partner Gram Vikas (GV), will gather data to design and implement a micro-hydro power plant in the Badi Trika Gouda village in India. Currently, the village relies on firewood and animal waste for light and cooking. By reducing the community's dependence on carbon-based fuels, the project will involve the community at every stage of the process and reduce local air pollution.
