Hydropower is one of the oldest renewable energy technologies and currently provides approximately 28% of U.S. renewable generation. Hydropower plays an important role as the energy landscape evolves to include more renewables, but there are environmental and societal challenges related to hydropower that still need to be addressed. To support a sustainable, clean energy future with hydropower, a holistic view of hydropower and its community was needed. This website presents the Hydropower Vision Roadmap—the culmination of a collaborative, community effort to outline where hydropower is now, where we would like to be by 2050, and the goals and activities needed to get there.

How are you helping make the modern vision for hydropower a reality?
