Clean energy from water

Hydropower key trends

Every year CNC TVAR delivers about 300 runners for the world’s largest source of clean electricity generation. Hydropower is an enabler of other renewable energy sources while providing vital services to manage water and mitigate climate change.

The electricity generation from hydropower reached an estimated 4,185 TWh in 2017, the highest ever contribution from a renewable energy source.

A total of 21.9 GW of hydropower capacity was put into operation in 2018, including pumped storage, bringing the world’s total installed capacity to 1,267 GW.

We played a signifficant role in that as the biggest producer of hydro turbine rotors worldwide.
