U.S. DOE Hydropower Advancement Project

Posted by Francisco / on 06/15/2012 / 0 Comments


The U.S. Department estimates that an additional 8 - 16 GW of additional capacity and approximately 55 TWh of annual generation can be added to the grid through upgrades to existing hydropower facilities. To pursue this additional capacity and generation potential, the U.S. DOE has developed the Hydropower Advancement Project (HAP). As part of this project, DOE is performing standard assessments on select hydropower facilities to identify opportunities to increase generation and value through improvements and expansions. Such assessments will be performed by teams trained by DOE at no cost to the facility owners.

If you would like more information on how to participate in this program, or if you know facility owners that would be interested in being part of this study, please contact Francisco Flores (francisco.flores@state.co.us) or Matthew Hess (matthew.hess@go.doe.gov).
