About This Report


Severe droughts over the past five years have led to a decrease of water inflow for the Hydroelectric Power industry, limiting its ability to generate electricity. Industry operators focused their attention on mitigating the effects of droughts by scaling back hydroelectricity operations. In turn, investment in hydroelectric infrastructure slowed and plans for upgrades to increase efficiency and output were delayed, as the need to combat droughts took center stage. In the coming years, sustained economic growth will contribute to more robust demand for electricity generation and transmission, while investments will be used to increase the efficiency of existing facilities and properly outfit the country's nonpowered dams.

Companies in this industry operate facilities that use water to generate hydroelectric and renewable electricity (other than wind and solar power). Industry players also use renewable energy sources, including wood, municipal waste, landfill gas, biomass and geothermal energy to generate electricity. Data is sourced from the Energy Information Administration and the US Census Bureau and does not include government-owned facilities.

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.
