Small hydropower is a renewable, clean, and predictable energy source. Small hydropower generation systems are used to generate electricity by converting the mechanical energy in the running water into electric energy, similar to larger conventional hydroelectric systems. Small hydro systems can be connected to the grid to provide power to it. It can also be used for independent and stand-alone applications in isolated remote areas. Setting up of small hydroelectric plants require low capital investment due to minimum reservoirs and civil construction work.
Increased focus towards rural electrification in emerging and underdeveloped economies, reducing dependency on conventional resources, and low maintenance cost and capital investment is driving the growth of the Small Hydropower market. Renewable power generation aids countries in meeting sustainable development goals through provision of access to secure, reliable, clean, and affordable energy. Large capacity of hydropower systems are being installed across the globe every year. Moreover, in recent years, there has been a drastic reductions in renewable energy technologies’ costs due to R&D and accelerated developments. Small hydropower plants can be built through existing dams or via a running river, which reduces more than 45% cost of civil construction and results into low capital cost of the project. Small hydropower plants have low operational cost as it requires less labor management and site maintenance. Hence, the low capital and maintenance cost associated with installation of small hydropower plant is expected to fuel the market growth. However, the cost associated with operating small hydropower plant when compared with New Solar Photovoltaic (PV) and Onshore Wind Power is high, which might hamper the growth of the market.
