- Hydro power plays a significant role in Africa. Currently, it accounts for 17 per cent of the electricity generation in Africa on an average. In some countries, the share of hydro power in generation exceeds 80 per cent. The continent’s current installed hydro capacity, including pumped storage, stands at about 37 GW. Hydro is the most important renewable power generation option today.
- With reliable and accessible electricity critical for Africa’s social and economic development, hydro power development offers the most economical solution for large-scale renewable electricity generation in the continent. As the technology is mature, it has been recognised as an ideal source to increase supply to national grids at the lowest cost compared to other power generation expansion options, thereby reducing outages and costs. Further, with the growing emphasis on solar, a low cost but intermittent resource, the need for hydro as a balancing source is being recognised.
- A reinvigoration of efforts has been witnessed in recent years to integrate power systems and create regional power pools to export hydro power across countries to not only meet the demand of major load centres but also gain from lower electricity generation costs. The governments are increasingly interested in regional, bilateral and multilateral approaches that emphasise better coordination and pooling of their efforts to create more robust regional power grids.
- Small-hydro also holds significant potential in the African region. Decentralised, small-scale hydro power is being viewed as an effective solution in many countries to provide reliable and affordable electrification to remote communities that are not likely to be connected to the national grid in the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, new and promising solutions like solar-hydro hybrids are gaining attention.
- That said, hydro power development in Africa has been slow. The current hydro capacity is just 11 per cent of the technical potential of the continent.
- The impact of hydro power development on local populations and on water use and rights, as well as issues over biodiversity, has impacted large-scale hydro power development. Another issue in Africa has been the allocation of water rights to countries and different users within countries, which has led to delays in getting project approvals.
- Strained national resources, and political and regulatory challenges have impacted hydro power funding as well. The role of public financing supported by multilateral and bilateral sources, and more recently, the increased interest in the contribution of private sector investors has been crucial.
- These challenges notwithstanding, hydro is expected to continue to play a key role in meeting Africa’s electricity needs. Its share in power generation is projected to increase to more than 23 per cent by 2040. Over the next decade, renewables are expected to account for 330 GW of the total capacity, with hydro contributing 100 GW by 2030.
- The mission of this virtual conference is to analyse the key trends in the hydro power segment in Africa as well as assess the short-term and long-term outlook for the sector. The conference will also highlight opportunities, experiences, technologies and best practices in construction and O&M as well as showcase noteworthy projects.
