Hydro electric power sector in Arunachal Pradesh is dominated by private sector players like Jindal Power, Reliance Energy, Jaiprakash Associates and KSK Energy. Private sector players are presently executing projects with an installed capacity of 35,031.5 MW. As many as 102 HEP projects in the state are being implemented by the private players. 12 projects which were earlier allocated to public sector companies like NHPC, NTPC and NEEPCO, now have been re-allocated to private sector players.

Arunachal Pradesh has the highest potential of around 50,000 MW for hydropower generation in India. However, most of these projects are running behind their schedule. Lack of infrastructure in the state is the main impediment for execution of the projects. In addition to this, environment and forest clearances and the land acquisition process takes significant time.
