Hydropower is the most mature, reliable and cost-effective renewable power generation technology where power is derived from the energy of water moving from higher to lower elevations. It is a proven, anticipated, and typically price-competitive technology. Hydropower has one of the best efficiencies of conversion of all known energy sources (water to wire 90 percent efficiency). Though it requires comparatively high initial investment, it has a long service life with very low operational and maintenance costs. The major hydropower project types are: Large Hydropower and Small Hydropower. There is no worldwide consensus on classification by project size (installed capacity, MW) due to varying development policies in different countries.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Global Hydropower market will grow at a CAGR of 4.35 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Gensets Market in India 2016-2020

Electricity is one of the major requirements for industrial, commercial, infrastructural, and residential growth of any country. The availability of uninterrupted power supply is necessary to fuel the growth of every industry, be it large-scale or small-scale, education, manufacturing, or healthcare. Low fuel availability of electricity is one of the major concerns faced by Indian industries. Coal supply by Coal India is restricted to about 65% of the actual coal requirement by coal-based thermal plants. This has led to increased dependence on imported coal, which in turn has resulted in increased power generation costs due to limited fuel availability. Increased operational inefficiencies and outstanding debts have led to poor financial health of state electricity distribution companie......
