The report, now available on ASDReports, The Hydropower Market 2016-2026: CAPEX and Installed Capacity Forecasts for Small Hydro, Large Hydro, Storage and Run-of-River Projects indicates that the Hydropower market will see CAPEX of $33.066bn in 2016, including spending on new-build and extension projects.
The lead analyst of the report said: “The hydropower market is currently in a period of unprecedented growth and innovation. The next ten years will see the widespread commercial deployment of storage hydropower, a boom in the emerging small hydro market, as well as the continued growth of run-of-river hydropower and the application of new technology (e.g. drones, GIS and automated operation). While storage and large hydro will continue their dominance when it comes to installed capacity, their share of capital spending in many developed and emerging economies will start to level off due to an increasing shortage of sites suitable for new installations. The small hydro and run-of-river hydro submarkets will, however, witness a veritable boom in the period 2016-2026.
The huge quantities of untapped hydropower potential in Asia, Africa and Latin America, growing energy demand and electricity prices, large scale electrification strategies, attempts to decarbonise energy systems and the unique capability of hydropower to generate base and peak load will all drive the deployment of hydropower globally. Furthermore, the spread and maturing of renewable support policies globally, including feed-in tariffs, regulatory streamlining, reduction of electricity import/export tariffs and favourable Power Purchase Agreements, is making hydropower projects commercially viable by reducing investment risk. The next ten years will see a significant increase in installed hydropower capacity globally as power networks rise to meet the growing global demand for electricity whilst simultaneously decarbonising the energy sector.”
The report contains 183 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the hydropower market. Visiongain provides annual CAPEX forecasts and analysis for the period 2016-2026 for the global market, as well as a CAPEX for the 4 main submarkets (Small Hydro (< 30 MW), Large Hydro (> 30 MW), Storage design and Run-of-river design). The report also includes capex and capacity forecasts, as well as analysis, for the 6 regional markets (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and Oceania) and 11 leading national markets (China, India, Pakistan, Philippines, Nepal, Turkey, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Canada and the United States of America).
A companies’ chapter provides detailed analysis and outlooks for the leading five hydropower owners and the five leading hydropower equipment suppliers, while the transcripts of exclusive interviews with Graeme Millen from Elemental Energy and Marie-Josee Privyk from Innergex provide expert insight alongside visiongain’s forecasts and analysis.
The Hydropower Market 2016-2026 report will be of value to existing and potential stakeholders and investors in the Hydropower industry. It will be useful for anyone seeking an understanding of key market dynamics, the outlook of different national markets and subsectors, as well as insight into patterns of innovation and deployment.
