One of the key factors currently driving the Africa small hydropower market is the low requirement of capital investments to get projects set up. Players as well as governments are aware of this and intend to make full use of the fact that small hydropower can be cheaper than several other alternative renewables in the long run. The market is also being driven by the minimal impact that small hydropower installations can have on the environment, in comparison to non-renewable sources as well as several large scale renewable power projects. However, the Africa small hydropower market is currently being hampered by the lack of access that several regions have to the key technologies required to successfully run a large-scale implementation process. The market is also being restricted by the lack of grid-based infrastructure that can support and make use of multiple small hydropower installations within an area.

In terms of production capacity, the African Small Hydropower market had reached 9,752.9 MW in 2015. It is very likely to reach 49,706.1 MW by the end of 2024, after expanding at a CAGR of 19.2% within the forecast period from 2016 to 2024.

North and South African Countries Dominate Small Hydropower Usage

In terms of nations, the Africa small hydropower market can be segmented into Zambia, Morocco, South Africa, Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana, and a collective minority of other nations. For 2015, it was observed that the southern and northern African nations held the leading shares in the Africa small hydropower market in terms of potential capacity for power generation. Emerging economies from Eastern Africa, Central Africa, and Western Africa are likely to be the core upcoming markets for small hydropower over the coming years.

The significant expansion of hydropower and the increasing emphasis put on hydroelectricity in developing regions are anticipated to be key drivers to the Africa small hydropower market. The future for small hydropower in Africa is expected to witness two tracks running in parallel to each other. One of them is the number of grid-connected projects that are popping up and that are intended to generate power to be fed into the national grid. The other is the growing number of small scale systems intended for private use. The future of grid-tied systems is linked to the policies adopted by several nations regarding the development of renewable energy sources.
