Small Hydropower Market : Hydroelectricity Is One Of The Most Eco-Friendly And Cleanest Sources Of Renewable Energy

Small Hydropower Market Overview

According to a recent survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, the Global Small Hydropower Market grew at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2017-2021 and is estimated to be US$ 1,746.5Mn in 2022. Currently, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 2,899.5Mn by 2032 end.

A small hydropower plant uses the flow of water to produce electricity. There is no universal agreement among countries and regions, so its classification varies from country to country. Small hydropower facilities, divided into parts below 10 MW and above 10 MW, can power an industrial facility or a small settlement. The amount of hydropower produced is directly correlated with river stream flow.

As a result, river stream flow changes may impact the performance of small hydroelectric plants. The quantity of rainfall and temperature in the area and other climatic factors influence stream flow seasonally. This affects the production of hydroelectricity.

ChemView Consulting has analyzed that hydroelectricity is one of the most eco-friendly and cleanest sources of renewable energy. It is one of the least expensive energy sources because it costs little to operate and maintain. Mini hydropower plants are highly effective and valuable renewable energy sources because they have efficiency above 90%. Mini hydro generators may generate around 100 KW of electricity.

Micro hydropower systems are made up of crucial parts, including water pipes or channels for transportation, turbines, pumps, alternators, regulators, and wiring for electricity distribution. Commercially available turbines and generators come as a package and must be put together, making the systems simple to maintain and replace. Consequently, more market opportunities are anticipated due to inexpensive maintenance and simple replacement.

Key Takeaways from the Small Hydropower Market

  • Based on the type, the micro hydropower type segment commanded most of the market, with a revenue share of more than 55.0% in 2021. Micro hydropower projects, which range in size from less than 1 MW, can supply electricity to a small village or rural industry in off-grid locations. The small hydropower market has been divided into micro hydropower and mini hydropower based on type.
  • Based on the component, all small hydropower plants’ major portion of project costs is devoted to civil construction. Civil constructions like weirs are built to appropriately direct the water onto turbines and raise the water head. These straightforward public structures are less expensive than those in large hydropower plants, but they account for a sizable portion of the total project cost in small hydropower plants.
  • Based on the region, with a market share of 42.3%, the Asia Pacific region is thought to be the largest market worldwide. China, Vietnam, and India are the three economies with the quickest growth rates in the Asia Pacific.
