    TRACKING HYDRO GROWTH

    Hydropower Growth…

    Evan Musolino, February 12, 2013 (Worldwatch Institute)

    “…[The market for hydropower] electricity generation is increasing…[It is] not subject to the variability that plagues wind and solar energy…[so its] greater reliability can…be harnessed to provide baseload power…

    “Global consumption and installed capacity of hydropower continued to increase in 2011, reaching 3,498 terawatt-hours (TWh) and 970 gigawatts (GW) respectively…”

    “Total consumption has now increased each year between 2003 and 2011…[though] in 2011 the growth rate slowed, registering only a 1.6 percent increase from the previous year…Among members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, hydroelectricity accounted for 5.7 percent of primary energy consumption…

    “…It played a more important role in [non-OECD] countries, at 7.1 percent of usage, and these nations accounted for 60.2 percent of worldwide hydroelectricity consumption…On a regional basis, South America and Central America are most dependent on hydroelectricity relative to total energy use…”
