In this paper a case study is presented to propose an alternative mechanism to include the impact of climate change into the hydropower projects’ feasibility valuation. We started from an independent engineer historical energy generation simulations; therefore, applying mixing unconditional disturbance and extreme value theory, a new path that satisfies a return level’ specification is created. The new path is used to analyze the effect of extreme events on the internal rate of return of the project. This mechanism could also be used to execute an educated guess as simple sensitivity test.
