Due to historically low prices for electricity in Sweden, many small-scale hydropowerplants were closed down. A small-scale power plant has more or less the samemaintenance costs as larger plants, but doesn’t generate as much income. Today’sincreasing price for electricity in combination with a desire for renewable energysources makes small-scale hydropower interesting again. The sawmill in Venås is afacility of that kind. During the 1920´s two Francis turbines were installed as powersource for the machinery and a small private DC-grid. In 1966 the dam collapsed andthe facility was therefore retired. There is a possibility that the station can once againbe used as a power station to feed electricity to the grid. This will demand a largeamount of work and economic investment. Therefore is both technical andeconomical calculations needed in order to get the facility profitable. This reportincludes such calculations for the Venås station.
