Market Definition

The creation of hydroelectric electricity on a small scale to supply a small community or industrial facility is known as small hydropower. The highest limit of what is called modest hydropower varies depending on the definition of a project, but in general, a generating capacity of up to 25 MW is acceptable, due to which they are situated at the top. Hydroelectric power plants transform the anticipated water energy into electrical energy. The amount of water flowing into the water turbine and its head determine the absolute power that hydroelectric power facilities can produce. Small hydropower produces energy by turning a turbine that is connected to a generator with the help of the water flow.

Global Small Hydropower Market Dynamics


  • Renewable Energy Policies and Targets

The development of the small hydropower industry is significantly influenced by government goals and policies aimed at raising the proportion of renewable energy in the overall energy mix. Small hydropower projects benefit from supportive policies such as feed-in tariffs, tax breaks, subsidies, and renewable portfolio requirements because they provide a favorable investment environment.

  • Energy Security and Independence

The possibility to diversify energy sources and lessen reliance on fossil fuels is provided by small hydropower. It provides a dependable and environmentally friendly energy choice, enhancing energy security and lowering vulnerability to changes in fuel prices and supply interruptions.


  • Renewable Energy Transition

Small hydropower offers a dependable and sustainable alternative in light of the growing emphasis on cutting greenhouse gas emissions and switching to renewable energy sources. By providing a means to produce power from a renewable source, it helps to lessen reliance on fossil fuels.

  • Rural Electrification

Rural and distant locations can benefit greatly from small hydropower projects by having access to electricity. Small hydropower systems can offer a cost-effective and sustainable energy solution, increasing living standards and fostering economic growth in these areas that frequently lack access to grid-connected power.

Regional incites: -

  • Asia-Pacific dominates the market in terms of market share and market revenue and will continue to flourish its dominance during the forecast period of 2023-2030. This is due to increasing investments in off-grid energy generation and rural electrification, rising investments in renewable and small hydropower projects in response to climate change, increasing positive outlook on renewable energy, and rising electricity consumption in this region.
