INDIA'S HYDROPOWER 10 GW
ENERDATA - 3 Dec 2020 - India has announced plans to build a 10 GW dam on the Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsangbo) River, which flows from Tibet into India and Bangladesh. The reservoir project is expected to help offset the impacts of China’s hydropower projects upstream, that could create water scarcity or trigger flash floods. Earlier in December 2020, China released plans to develop up to 60 GW of hydropower capacity on a section of the Brahmaputra River. The project was included in the proposals for formulating the country’s 14th Five-Year Plans (2021-2025) and its long-term goal through 2035.
