Research and Markets: Hydro Power In North East India

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Hydro Power In North East India" report to their offering.

While India is ranked at 5th position in terms of hydro-electric potential globally, the country has tapped only a small percentage of the total potential. Long gestation periods, law and order issues, resistance from locals and issues relating to obtaining relevant clearances and approvals are some of the major factors that impede development of hydro power in the country. The story is not any different for the northeastern region which is most lavishly endowed in the entire country in terms of potential hydro power. The North East region is the least developed in the sector, both in terms of absolute numbers and in proportion to other regions of India. The report elucidates the identified hydro potential of India and state-wise break up of identified potential of the North East Region along with elaborating on the operational, under-construction and planned projects.

Hydro-power development in North East India, although very promising, is not short of challenges. The report elaborates on the problems faced by developers during various stages of a project - Planning stage, Designing stage, Construction stage and during Operation. It is important for concerned stakeholders to factor in these hindrances while engaging in hydro power development in the North East region.

Both Central and State Governments have formulated a number of measures to address issues related to hydro power development and to accelerate the pace of development. The report spells out the policy measures and various other schemes that have been implemented to that end. Like the New Hydro Policy of 2008 is aimed to act as a catalyst in providing impetus to hydro power development of the country. The Policy seeks to balance the competing interests of various stakeholders for the sake of speedy implementation of hydro projects in the country.

All the states in the North East region are keen on developing their hydro-potential and have identified various hydro sites.
