Executive Summary

Global Hydro Power Update April 2015

Hydropower is receiving strong support from governments around the world through favorable policies and incentives. The global market continued to grow in 2014 with the addition of nearly 34 Gigawatts (GW) of capacity, resulting in year-on-year growth of 3.1%. By 2025, a 10% increase in large hydro capacity is expected in the Asia-Pacific region due to the availability of several untapped hydropower resources. Pumped-storage capacity is also expected to increase by about 13% by 2025. Globally, there are 2,724 upcoming hydropower projects as of April 2015. Most are situated in the Asia-Pacific region, largely in the permitting, under construction and announced stages of development. Europe is the second-largest in terms of upcoming hydropower projects, with countries such as Georgia, Turkey and Russia leading the way. Policy changes in several countries were predominantly oriented towards the development and expansion of renewable energy sources, including hydropower. Rising carbon emissions and volatility in fossil fuel prices are pushing governments across the globe to promote the development of renewable energy technologies. The global hydropower market recorded 248 completed deals in 2014, most of which were asset finance and debt offerings. However, in terms of value, debt offerings were the clear winner recording an aggregate deal value of USD 46.2 billion. In 2014, a total of 115 contracts were signed in the hydropower market, most of which were for the supply and construction of power-plant-related equipment.
