RAPID/Best Practices/FERC Hydropower Licensing: A Review of Utilization of the ILP, TLP, and ALP
Abstract This report provides an analysis of the [[
This report provides an analysis of the [[Federal Energy Regulatory Commission]]’s (FERC) three licensing procedures available for applicants seeking to develop non-federal hydropower projects. Hydropower projects subject to FERC jurisdiction, which do not meet the qualification requirements for an exemption from FERC licensing, must complete the FERC hydropower licensing process utilizing one of FERC’s three licensing processes: The Integrated Licensing Process (ILP), Traditional Licensing Process (TLP), or Alternative Licensing Process (ALP). Effective after July 23, 2005, the ILP became the default hydropower licensing process under the [[Federal Power Act]] (FPA). [[18 CFR §§ 5.1 – 5.31, Integrated License Application Process|18 CFR § 5.3(a)(2)]]. Any license applicant seeking to use the TLP or ALP is now required to submit to FERC a request to use the TLP or ALP with their Notice of Intent (NOI) and Pre-Application Document (PAD) and receive approval before initiating either of those processes. [[18 CFR §§ 5.1 – 5.31, Integrated License Application Process|18 CFR § 5.3(a)(2)]]. As shown through the case studies in the full report, the ALP and TLP are still both utilized licensing processes. However, they may not be appropriate for all projects. The case studies provided in the full report highlight that FERC does use its authority to deny the TLP in favor of the default ILP where it finds the TLP is not suitable. <span class="btn btn-rapid bp">[https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy19osti/71982.pdf View the full report]</span>
