In December 2015, the International Hydropower Association (IHA) carried out an annual issues survey for the first time. This new, annual initiative aims to take the pulse of the hydropower sector at large, monitor key issues facing the sector and identify where new development is happening around the world.
In February 2016, we hosted an exclusive webinar for survey respondents, presenting the main findings from the survey to provide insights on the key trends in global hydropower development. We took a closer look at the following questions, and more:
At the COP21 meetings in Paris, the French hydropower industry pledged to ensure that hydropower can play a leading role in the transition to a clean energy economy.
In December 2015, the International Hydropower Association (IHA) conducted a new annual survey. More than 200 people involved in hydropower gave their views on a range of issues for the sector.
A Canadian study based on life-cycle assessments sheds light on how different power generation options and electricity mixes compare in terms of their greenhouse gas footprint and environmental impact.
Delay is a common problem in large construction works, and hydropower projects are no exception. Delays are always costly to the developer, but all stakeholders can suffer broad economic and social costs when a project's benefits are delivered later than had been planned.
After two weeks of intense negotiations in Paris, 195 nations have agreed on a plan to hold the “increase in the global average temperature to well below 2° C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C”.
The Africa Energy Indaba Conference is the definitive energy conference for Africa providing an annual programme that shapes energy policy for the continent.
The conference will provide delegates with the opportunity to debate policy, review industrial progress and market trends, discuss the efficiency of various public support mechanisms and public-private partnerships across the continent, and review new data and the latest technological trends globally.

We collaborated with HydroWorld to produce this short film, showcasing views on the sector from four different hydropower associations: the International Hydropower Association, National Hydropower Association, Canadian Hydropower Association and Northwest Hydroelectric Association.
The documentary features views from Ken Adams, IHA's president, who speaks about future prospects for the industry, financing challenges and reporting on greenhouse-gas emissions from hydropower reservoirs.
