Essentials of the DOE Hydropower Vision Report

Marla Barnes, Publisher and Chief Editor of Hydro Review, will be moderating a live webcast about a new Department of Energy (US) hydropower report and its implications. Dave Culligan and Rick Miller from HDR, and Linda Church Ciocci from NHA will be the presenters. They will discuss the essentials of the DOE Hydropower Vision Report and how to make the 400 page report work for you. They’ll break the report down and direct you to the key points that will help leverage the report to your benefit, using proof points to make your case.

The panelists will also address the NHA's plans to help the industry unlock hydro and secure nearly 50 GW of installed hydropower capacity by 2050.
