As deployment of wind and solar continues to grow, flexibility will become a key criterion for the next phase of the World’s energy transition. Hydropower, despite occupying a small proportion of the energy mix, will remain a system cornerstone due to its relative reliability and predictability.

The energy sector, the largest source of global greenhouse gas emissions, must decarbonise to meet the challenge of climate change. Renewable hydropower plays a key role in reducing the world's dependence on fossil fuels and avoiding harmful air pollutants.

Hydropower projects of all sizes can result in net-benefits to communities, energy systems and water security, provided they have a strategic fit in a river basin and are developed and operated sustainably.

With our Hydro manufacturing partners in Germany, Endeks Holding delivers sustainable technology solutions from planning to implementation for energy generation and following Internationally recognized Hydropower Sustainability Tools exist to ensure that hydropower projects can be developed and operated in accordance with good practice. These tools comprise the Hydropower Sustainability Guidelines on Good International Industry Practice (HGIIP), the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol (HSAP) and the Hydropower Sustainability ESG Gap Analysis Tool (HESG).

The Hydropower Sustainability Tools were developed by a multi-stakeholder group of civil society, industry, governments and financial institutions, and are aligned with safeguards and frameworks developed by the World Bank, International Finance Corporation and the Equator Principles group of commercial banks.
