Hydropower: The Next Frontier

Hydropower is shifting from a flexible source of energy covering peak loads in a fossil fuel-dominated energy mix, towards a function of supporting the more flashy solar and wind sources available during the day. At the same time, pumped-hydropower has emerged as a key energy storage and valorization option. Hence, there is the need to better understand hydropower future potential, roles and market opportunities.

Included in this white paper:

  • An overview of the hydropower market
  • Challenges and emerging technologies
  • New mini-hydropower technologies
  • The different types of hydropower plants

To read more about how the natural resources sector is shifting to renewable energy, a number of examples are presented in this Intelligence Brief Renewable Energies: The Place To Go.
