Over the past five years, political developments have been intertwined with Australia's energy markets. These developments have overshadowed the underlying electricity supply and demand dynamics in the Hydro-Electricity Generation industry markets. The industry has operated against a backdrop of declining household and business demand for centrally generated electricity. This has resulted in supply overhang for generators that were less able to respond to declining demand in the short term. However, regulation changes have created incentives for industry production and capacity expansion during this period, regardless of these underlying trends.
Companies in the industry generate electricity using hydro-electric generation processes. Firms that use pumped-storage generation processes are also included in the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
