New Report Examines the U.S. Hydropower Permitting Process

How do you balance the growth of hydropower with the safety of people and the planet? These are the questions National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are asking each day and working to answer for a #CleanEnergyFuture.

Learn more:

Permitting and federal authorization processes can increase the costs, risks, and timelines of licensing (or relicensing) hydropower projects. Now, a new report examines what factors affect this process and how.

🔥Is it hot in here or is it just our Geothermal Technologies Office? Geothermal has the potential to generate 129 GWe of electricity by 2050. This is equivalent to powering 129 million homes, or powering all the homes in Texas 12 times over! But did you know that geothermal is always-available—24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Geothermal is the heat beneath the Earth and is constantly available to heat and cool our homes, businesses, and communities, as well as store power for later use.

The U.S. Department of Energy awarded nearly $40 million to 40 projects aimed at advancing the next generation of solar, storage, and industrial technologies. Together, these projects will keep the U.S. on track of achieving 100% clean electricity by 2035.

The 40 projects focus on:
☀️ Increasing the lifespan of solar PV panels from 30 to 50 years,
☀️ Developing solar technology to aid in fuel and chemicals production,
☀️ Advancing storage technologies, and
☀️ Increasing diversity and equity in the solar sector
