Hydropower plays an important role in meeting the world’s growing electricity needs. It is a source of power in around 160 countries worldwide. Since the 1990s, hydropower growth has been driven by concerns regarding climate change, energy security and the volatility of fossil fuel prices. Today, hydropower accounts for around one-sixth of the world’s electricity supply.
The Global Hydropower Industry, Market Size and Growth
The Asia-Pacific region leads the global hydro power market with a total installed capacity of 295,764 MW at the end of 2008. The region has witnessed tremendous growth in the hydro electric sector over the years, principally because of strong growth in the leading hydro power nations such as China, Japan, India and Australia.
