Title The Norwegian master plan for water resources – a national co-ordinated plan For non-developed hydropower sources
Description This case study describes the methodology used in a plan invented for ranking non-developed 
hydropower sources. The plan was initiated due to increasing concern from various interest groups toward further development of the remaining hydropower sources. The idea was to evaluate projects with the aim of prioritising the projects and to develop the most economically sound and least environmentally damaging projects first.
