Energy Dept Releases New Hydropower Market Report
Providing a snapshot of the US hydropower fleet
The Energy Department today released its second ever Hydropower Market Report, which provides a snapshot of the distribution, characteristics, and trends of the current U.S. hydropower fleet. The report highlights the flexibility and reliability services that hydropower and pumped-storage hydropower (PSH) provide to the grid, which are particularly important as the U.S. grid and generation mix continues to change.
Request for Information
The Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office seeks information from the public on understanding how hydropower and pumped storage projects contribute to electric grid resiliency and reliability and how those contributions could be altered for a changing grid.
