Renewable energy trends drive small hydropower market installation

Posted on Updated on

Global Small Hydropower Market size by installed base was more than 110 GW for 2015 and is predicted to register more than 2.5% growth during the forecast period. Demand for pure and renewable source of energy has resulted in growth of the industry. The reason being that hydropower is purest form of renewable energy and does not pollute the environment by emitting hazardous pollutants like carbon dioxide. Also, small hydropower needs less reservoirs and construction activity it has negligible impact on environment. Further, the industry is rapidly growing owing to favourable government policies and government subsidies, tax benefits & incentives.

In 2003, Voith Siemens won a $45 million engineering & procurement deal to deploy three small-scale hydropower units with overall deployment capacity of 60MW for Mexican firm comex hidro. These power plants were developed on the reservoirs to control floods and provide irrigation in Mexico.

Statkraft penetrated Indian hydropower industry in 2004 and was a first overseas firm to make investment in hydropower sector in India. It is involved in two big hydropower projects in India amounting to total 300 MW. The firm is further exploring new investment avenues within hydropower sector by partnering with Tata Power which is India’s biggest integrated power firm. Together the two firms have a license for new plant “Dugar” amounting to greater than 400MW in Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.
