As part of Biden’s Investing in America agenda, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced last week that 66 hydro facilities will receive more than $38 million in incentive payments for electricity generated and sold. Administered by DOE’s Grid Deployment Office, the Hydroelectric Production Incentives are part of a program funded by a $750 million investment to support the continued operation of U.S. hydropower and ensure a more reliable and resilient electric grid system.

Also released is the reimagined Hydropower Vision Roadmap, led by the Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO). Originally released in 2016, the Roadmap is a living document that has been revised by the WPTO in collaboration with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the support of the hydropower community. The roadmap lays out specific activities to achieve the goal of increased electricity generation by 2050.
