Sites with hydropower potentialities in Bangladesh are not too many. The hydropower potential available in the Karnafulli river located in the southeastern hilly part of the country has already been harnessed to its maximum producing 230 MW electricity through large hydro plants. Other potential sites for small hydropower generation are Sangu and Matamuhuri rivers in the Chittagong Hill Tract districts, and Brahmaputra Multipurpose Barrage Project at Bahadurabad. If developed these sites could yield a total of 200 MW hydropower during the period November to April of a year.
