Background
India is endowed with rich hydropower potential to the tune of 148 GW (which would be able to meet a demand of 84 GW at 60% load factor) which makes it one of the most important potential sources to meet the energy security needs of the country. Various factors have contributed to the slow pace of hydropower development, resulting in the declining share of hydropower in India’s energy mix since 1966. These have been compounded as hydropower development has largely remained under the ambit of state governments (water being a state-specific subject) with varying policies like upfront premium, royalty power, land acquisition policy, adopted by the states. Hydro’s critical role in energy security for the country is based on the elements of sustainability, availability and affordability.
 
Objective of the Conference is to provide a conducive forum for interaction between stakeholders from industry and government and to address related issues/concerns, suggest a roadmap to accelerate Hydropower Development in the Country.
