Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The construction of hydroelectric plants is limited by the availability of suitable locations for power plants. Hydroelectric power has been harvested since the nineteenth century, so locations are increasingly limited. This factor, as well as several years of drought and a greater focus on wind and solar power as renewable energy sources, has caused the industry to decline over the past five years. Still, an increase in demand for electricity and a continued shift away from fossil fuel-based and nuclear power will renew growth in the five years to 2017.... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

Hydroelectric power plants mainly consist of dams that generate a range of output. These hydroelectric power plants are the most conventional and are incorporated into dammed reservoirs, providing them with a relatively reliable supply of water. Aside from dams, other hydroelectric power plants include run-of-river and pumped storage plants. Run-of-river power plants do not have a reservoir and output changes with differences in river flows. Pumped storage power plants can function as energy storage and have the ability to reverse their turbines, using power from the grid to force water into a reservoir, storing it there to generate electricity at a later time... purchase to read more
