The International Hydropower Association (IHA) has published its annual report into the state of hydropower infrastructure around the world, with the industry body calling on countries and companies to invest more heavily in hydropower as a reliable and flexible power source amid the uncertainty caused by Covid-19.

The publication, the ‘2020 Hydropower Status Report’, found that many elements of the global hydropower infrastructure were relatively unaffected by the spread of Covid-19. This is in spite of global lockdowns causing electricity demand to plummet by up to 20% in some countries, according to the International Energy Association.
