Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000629
The Department of Energy (DOE) is requesting information from hydropower owners, operators, project and technology developers, equipment manufacturers, consultants, and other stakeholders concerning the identification of efficiency, capacity, and water utilization improvements at existing U.S. hydropower facilities. DOE estimates that approximately 8 to 16 GW of additional capacity and approximately 55 TWh of annual generation can be added through cost effective and sustainable upgrades at existing hydropower facilities. DOE has developed the Hydropower Advancement Project (HAP) to support development of this resource. DOE is seeking suggestions and comments on the objectives, rationale, methodology and execution of the HAP as described in this Request for Information (RFI). These comments will assist DOE in the refinement of this initiative and the underlying methodology.
For more information, see the full solicitation.
