Report Description

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.
