Data released as part of the Hydropower Data Insights Report 2010–25 shows that with more than 18GW of new capacity planned, hydropower may reach 56.5GW by 2025. Of this, large state-owned hydropower projects remain an effective solution to capacity growth across Africa, with more than 14GW of planned capacity up to 2025.
