Introduction



Hydropower has been one of the sources of energy harnessed for centuries in different parts of the world. Around the beginning of 20th Century more efficient hydro power plants developed in different parts of the globe were used for small hydropower generation. Recently, interest in the mini and small hydropower has increased in many countries, especially in developing countries including China and India.

Small hydro power has generated a great deal of interest because they are easily utilisable source of energy and as a moderate investment method for providing electricity to far flung areas in the hilly regions. Generation of electricity through small hydro electric projects is environmental friendly as compared to most other plants run by fossil fuels and therefore it can play an important role in protection of environment and in maintenance of ecological balance especially for the isolated hilly areas.



Hydro Power Potential



Hydro-power is one of the energy sources which oscillate between aspiration and achievements. But today there is a strong push for large hydro projects in India. While the pro-hydro lobby is working towards meeting India’s full potential, the anti-hydro-power groups are targeting those projects which they believe are violating environmental and human rights norms. Despite growing number of oppositions to hydro-power, the Indian government is very optimistic to achieve its potential.

The Indian government considers hydropower as a renewable economic, non-polluting and environmentally benign source of energy. The exploitable hydro-electric potential in terms of installed capacity is estimated to be about 148,700 MW, out of which a capacity of 30,164 MW (20.3%) has been developed so far and 13,616 MW (9.2 %) of capacity is under construction. In addition, 6,782 MW in terms of installed capacity from small, mini and micro hydro schemes have been assessed. Also, 56 sites for pumped storage schemes with an aggregate installed capacity of 94,000 MW have been identified. The government expects to harness its full potential of hydropower by 2027 with a whopping investment of 5,000 billion Rupees.
