The prime objective of Hydropower Market report is to help the user understand the market in terms of its definition, segmentation, market potential, influential trends, and the challenges that the market is facing. Deep researches and analysis were done during the preparation of the report. The readers will find this report very helpful in understanding the market in depth.

Market Highlights

As, Hydropower comes along with low levelised cost, high capacity utilization factor and ease of grid parity, which will stimulate the global hydropower market size. Recently, Energy Information Administration (EIA) quoted that, hydroelectricity capacity utilization factor (CUF) to be over 60% when compared to 25% for Solar PV. Stringent government regulation towards reducing the global carbon footprint coupled with depleting conventional resources will drive the global hydropower market. However, the high initial investment cost of hydropower infrastructure with safety concern regarding it and developing modern technology with alternative product launch can restrain global hydropower market.

 Small Hydropower segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate

The low civil construction rate associated with growing measures to limit the carbon emissions will boost the small hydropower market.  Favorable renewable policy model along with financial assistance by the institutions including climate aligned bonds, Aquila Capital and World Bank will drive the small & large scale hydropower across the globe. In 2015, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) introduced the Small-Scale Hydro Power (SSHP) Program with a target of achieving 33% share of the overall energy mix by 2020 under the ECOWAS Renewable Energy Policy (EREP). The overall costing of the small scale hydropower is the crucial factor as compared to other capacity, which will drive the global small scale hydropower.
