Running smoothly: Efficiency upgrades and smaller plants will boost performance
Hydroelectric Power in the US
Go with the flow
Although hydroelectricity is a renewable energy source and perceived as environmentally friendly, establishing a new hydroelectric facility has been difficult for industry players because of stringent state and federal regulations and a lack of suitable locations. Furthermore, the recession caused financing for large projects to dry up and, in turn, made it hard for industry firms to break ground. Industry players have remained busy, though. Plans for upgrades are already in the works, and industry players are seeking to upgrade facilities as electricity demand climbs and the water keeps flowing.
Firms in this industry operate facilities that use water to generate hydroelectric and renewable electricity
(other than wind power and solar power). Industry players also use renewable energy sources including wood, municipal waste, landfill gas, biomass and geothermal energy to generate electricity.
