Energy Department Announces $5 Million to Assess Upgrade Opportunities at Hydropower Facilities

Posted by Putri Abdullah - On April 18, 2012 (EST)

In support of President Obama's all-of-the-above energy strategy, the Energy Department today announced up to $5 million available this year to assess opportunities to increase power production at up to 40 existing hydropower facilities around the nation. Through this competitive funding opportunity, the Department will work with hydropower professionals to conduct standardized assessments to identify opportunities to increase generation and value at hydropower plants—already the nation's largest source of renewable energy. As much of America's aging hydropower infrastructure is more than 50 years old, this effort could help accelerate the deployment of upgrades at existing hydropower facilities, creating clean energy jobs, supporting our nation's economic competitiveness, and increasing the supply of renewable energy to American families and businesses.
