RAPID/Best Practices/State Models to Incentivize and Streamline Small Hydropower Development
Abstract This report analyzes state-led initiatives
This report analyzes state-led initiatives and programs that incentivize and streamline small hydroelectric development. In 2016, the hydropower fleet in the United States produced more than 6% (approximately 265,829 gigawatt-hours [GWh]) of the total net electricity generation. The median-size hydroelectric facility in the United States is 1.6 MW and 75% of total facilities have a nameplate capacity of 10 MW or less. Moreover, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hydropower Vision study modeled a scenario identifying approximately 49 GW of deployable hydroelectric potential by 2050. Much of the hydroelectric potential identified is at low-impact new stream-reaches, existing conduits, and non-powered dams with a median project size of 10 MW or less. To optimize the potential and value of small hydropower development, state governments are crafting policies that provide financial assistance and expedite state and federal review processes for small hydroelectric projects. <span class="btn btn-rapid bp">[https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy18osti/70098.pdf View the full report]</span>
