  • Hydro power is expected to be an important contributor to India’s capacity mix in the next few years and help the country move towards its net-zero goals. From a current base of over 46 GW, the installed hydro power capacity (including pumped storage) in the country is expected to reach 59.7 GW by 2026-27 and 82.6 GW by 2031-32, as per the Central Electricity Authority’sdraft National Electricity Plan (NEP) 2022. Large hydro would contribute nearly 17 per cent to the country’s projected renewable capacity base of over 344 GW by 2026-27.
  • With the increasing share of renewable energy in the grid, a key role in future hydro capacity addition is expected to be played by pumped storage hydro projects. It is one of the oldest and largest energy storage technologies available. Its other advantages are its availability of spinning reserves at almost no cost to the system and its ability to regulate frequency to meet sudden load changes in the network. Almost 17.7 GW of pumped storage capacity is expected to come up by 2031-32.
  • However, for hydro to play a meaningful role in energy transition, hydro capacity additions need to be accelerated. In the last couple of years, the government has extended various policy measures to support the sector, such as the notification of the hydro power obligation as a separate entity within non-solar RPO, waiver of ISTS charges for pumped storage plants and budgetary support for flood moderation. That said, there are still a number of unresolved issues such as delays in environmental and forest clearances resulting in time and cost overruns as well as the need for more support and incentives for the development of pumped storage technology.
  • The mission of this conference is to offer a platform for understanding the key issues, challenges, opportunities and outlook for the hydropower segment in India. The discussions and presentations at the conference will give an insight into the future trajectory and potential opportunities available for the hydropower segment in India. The conference will also showcase new technologies, best practices, experiences in project construction and O&M, and noteworthy projects.
