2019 report on hydropower

The 2019 Hydropower Status Report, published by the International Hydropower Association (IHA), offers insights on hydropower development across all regions of the world.

Now in its sixth edition, this report is compiled by a team of analysts using information provided by our members, industry sources and government representatives, published sources and media monitoring.


Research found that, during 2018, hydropower projects added almost 22 gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity worldwide. This brought existing capacity to 1,292 GW, resulting in an estimated 4,200 terawatt hours (TWh) in clean electricity generation last year.

Hydropower development today is most active in fast growing economies and emerging markets, with the East Asia and the Pacific region, followed by South America, adding the highest additional capacity last year. The United States, which was previously surpassed by China, has now been eclipsed by Brazil as the second largest hydropower country by installed capacity.
