2013 Global Hydropower Market Update: Installations Up by 15% from 2012

Summary

Annual installed capacity increased by 13.5% over 2012 from 34,608 Megawatts (MW) to 39,297 MW. China remained market leader in 2013, 14,967 MW of hydropower projects were installed in China, which accounted for 38.1% of global hydropower capacity additions. Hydropower installations in 2014 expected to decline by 6.4% from 2013. Government support, feed-in tariffs, de-centralized generation and nuclear phase-out remained market drivers for hydropower whereas drought, a long gestation period, changing rainfall patterns and clashes between water-sharing states/countries remained key challenges. Pumped-storage share was higher in the European market than global average. Pipeline capacity: China is expected to remain the global leader between 2014 and 2020 and install 15,925 MW of hydropower plants in 2014, rising to 21,918 MW in 2020. Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE): A long project life and no expenses for fuel purchase allows hydropower to generate lower-cost electricity.
