FERC Licensing 101 Training Nov. 1st

Join us for an introduction on how hydropower licensing works, what you can achieve during a project licensing, how the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission works, and strategies for getting involved. This training is geared towards newer hydropower practitioners, but there is something for everyone to learn. We will have lots of time for discussion, so come with questions.
