DOE Releases New Report on the Future of Hydropower
This new DOE report, "Hydropower Vision: A New Chapter for America's First Renewable Electricity Source," looks at the future of hydropower through 2050. According to the report, with continued technology advancements, innovative market mechanisms, and a focus on environmental sustainability, hydropower in the United States could grow from 101 gigawatts (GW) to nearly 150 GW of combined electricity generation and storage capacity by 2050. Achieving this growth would help advance America's low-carbon economy and leverage renewable energy sources.
