Inside you will find key highlights:

  • At 34 GW, 2022 marks the first time since 2016 that more than 30 GW of hydropower came online, including 10 GW of pumped storage (PSH).
  • Hydropower currently provides over 15% of the world's electricity.
  • Current pipeline shows 590 GW of hydropower projects at various stages of development, including 214 GW of PSH.
  • To continue momentum and reduce the 700 GW gap between pipeline and net zero pathways, governments must work collaboratively to boost investment, streamline licensing and introduce sustainable practice regulations.
