  • It has been another tough year for the hydropower segment. Capacity additions in the last fiscal were less than even 1 GW and the segment missed the annual target by almost 40 per cent. With around 45 GW of installed capacity, its current share in the total installed capacity has been reduced to just around 13 per cent, much below that of renewables (at over 20 per cent). Its share in power generation has remained the same since the last year (over 10 per cent), vis-a-vis renewable energy generation, which is now set to overtake it.
  • The private sector’s share in installed hydro capacity is still at an insignificant 7 per cent. The total exploited potential is only 30 per cent, significantly lower than other hydro-rich nations. The upcoming project pipeline remains weak (12.2 GW) and stranded at various stages of project development, leading to time and cost overruns. A recent positive development though was the Supreme Court allowing the construction of stalled hydropower projects in Uttarakhand.
  • While there have been discussions on getting hydro back on the policy agenda, the segment is yet to witness any significant development. The new hydropower policy, which promises to address a number of challenges, is yet to be announced. Among other things, it proposes to declare hydro as a renewable energy source, remove restrictive clauses like mandatory free power sales to states and provide softer loans for such projects for longer periods.
  • That said, while on the one hand, hydro power has been losing ground to more competitive renewable energy sources, it is gaining importance in meeting the changing grid requirements on the other. Greater renewable energy penetration has increased the need for balancing power. Hydro power is being increasingly seen as being best suited to meet these requirements. In fact, the black start capability of hydropower stations has been acknowledged to be strategic from the point of grid resiliency by regulators.
  • With hydropower stations fast-ramping capability and the ability to respond more quickly than thermal stations, storage and pondage hydropower stations are proposed to be gainfully utilised for regulation services to meet the system requirements. Recently, hydro has been brought under the fast response ancillary services ambit to handle grid intermittency issues.
  • In order to facilitate hydropower stations to work efficiently with other renewable technologies, existing plant owners are embracing digitalisation and new operations and maintenance (O&M) practices to improve the performance of turbines and equipment, and optimise asset management.
  • Hydro power can also play a key role in promoting India’s plans of strengthening cross-border ties. A significant number of transmission interconnections are already being planned with Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan to support evacuation and import of power from future hydro projects planned in the SAARC region.
  • The mission of this conference is to analyse the key issues, challenges, opportunities and outlook for the hydropower segment in India. The conference will also provide a platform to showcase new technologies, construction methods and noteworthy projects.
