India Hydropower Sector Potential Examined by GlobalData in Topical Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com

01 Oct 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Hydropower comprises more than 20% of India’s total installed capacity. However, the country has a total hydropower capacity of 68% yet to be developed. North-Eastern region has the maximum potential of just over 93% followed by the Northern region at 60% capacity to be developed. Small hydropower projects are poised to contribute to hydro capacity addition relatively soon.

Recent grid disturbances have shown importance of peaking power where hydropower is ideally suited. Besides, in wake of issues of fuel supply with thermal power plants, intermittent power supply from wind and solar power tariffs on the higher side, hydropower is a reliable and good quality power at affordable cost. Government of India is vigorously promoting large-scale hydropower development in the country through changes in policies, which are all driven to involve greater private entrepreneurs.
