The new analysis offers a comprehensive view of the hydropower market by project type, that is, large-scale hydro, small-scale hydro and pumped storage.

The research also provides historical and forecast analysis of the global hydropower installed capacity, power generation and market value.

The forecast growth trend is slightly slower than that experienced by the sector during the last decade, when annual growth was closer to 3.5 percent, the report says.

The global installed capacity increased from 897 GW in 2006 to 1,031 GW in 2010.

In addition to the information above, the report also details the competitive landscape of major hydropower project owners in the countries such as the US, Canada, Brazil, Russian Federation, Norway, China, Japan and India.

It also lifts the curtain on such emerging hydropower markets such as, Venezuela, Turkey, Switzerland and Mexico.
