The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) conducts research into two advanced water power technologies: marine and hydrokinetic technologies and conventional hydropower technologies. The DOE offers programs in Hydropower Technology Development, Hydropower Market Acceleration, and Marine and Hydrokinetic Technology Development.

The DOE recently restructured hydropower Research and Development, which is now organized around two primary areas: enhancing the viability of hydropower, and expanding the application of hydropower.

The best practices, project resources, and tools available on this page can help you implement your Hydropower Technology programs efficiently and cost-effectively.
