Opportunity: Recovery Act: Hydroelectric Facility Modernization


The Department of Energy is soliciting applications from industry members or industry-led partnerships that propose to develop, deploy, and test hydropower projects that would modernize the existing hydropower infrastructure in the U.S. and increase both the quantity and value of hydropower generation, including environmental performance. The program will focus on supporting the deployment of turbines and control technologies to increase and maximize system generation at existing non-Federal hydroelectric facilities. Financial assistance will be provided to a variety of hydropower projects that can be developed without significant modifications to dams and with a minimum of regulatory delay. Projects should be able to demonstrate improved environmental performance, such as a reduction in the rate of fish mortality at project sites or an increase in concentration of dissolved oxygen surrounding the project sites. Proposed projects should be able to demonstrate improved quantity and quality (value) of energy produced, through increased efficiency and enhanced environmental performance. Projects that propose to use advanced technologies that improve upon on technologies or operations in common use are preferred.
