Abstract: The river stretch from Longyangxia to Qingtongxia, with a head drop of 1,465 m in a distance of 1,023 km (including backwater length of the Longyangxia Reservoir) is the focus of this paper. The total theoretical hydropower potential is 11,330 MW. The favourable conditions for power development in this river stretch are listed. After thorough investigation and careful studies, a cascade scheme consisting of 15 projects is contemplated to develop this river stretch.
