Clean energy offered by these systems accompanied by ability to handle base load demand is anticipated to drive offshore hydropower market growth. Non intermittent flow of electricity offered by production plants is likely to surge the industry demand from 2016 to 2023. In addition, it also allows plant operators to have excellent control over the energy production. Rising awareness regarding conventional energy might positively impact the industry growth. Furthermore, increasing carbon footprint is likely to boost offshore hydropower market size over the forecast period.
Hydropower plants can be categorized on the basis of production capacity such as small, large, Pico-hydro as well as micro plants. Plants with more than 30 MW of production capacity are called large plants. Small production plants are the ones having production capacity ranging between 100 KW to 30 MW. Energy generation plants having production capacity less than 100 KW fall under Pico and micro power plants.
Tidal power turbines market offers functioning similar to operating principle of horizontal axis wind turbines. Tidal current generates a torque on the rotor that is used to propel a step-up gearbox; this in turn is likely to drive the asynchronous generator and thus results in energy generation. Power electronics implied in these systems are expected to regulate the power quality.
As of 2013, China hydropower capacity was estimated to be more than 280 GW and is expected to experience high growth prospects with respect to offshore systems. Europe is likely to experience massive growth owing to presence of large number of industry partners in the region. Favorable regulatory policies regarding construction of these systems are likely to drive growth from 2016 to 2023. North America is expected to witness considerable surge in the industry demand for these systems. The spur in the region can be subjected to rising investments in installation of these systems over the forecast period.
Key industry participants accumulating significant offshore hydropower market share include Iberdrola, First Solar, Bronzeoak Philippines, Vattenfall, Calpine Corp, NextEra Energy, Siemens, Alstom, China Yangtze Power, RusHydro, LDK Solar, Suzlon Energy, E.ON and Hydrochina International Engineering among others.
