There is the potential for further development of smaller-scale hydro-electric projects in the water supply system throughout Victoria . A hydro resource study commissioned by SEAV identified the potential to install 16.5MW of hydro electricity generation on existing water supply infrastructure.

Melbourne Water is currently developing six mini hydro-electricity generating sites on its water supply system. The study also identified the theoretical mini-hydro potential within Victoria's stream network.
