Learn how pairing hydropower with batteries and other energy storage technologies may allow for better run-of-river operations and how this pairing may mitigate for hydro peaking.
Learn about the Michigan Dam Safety Task Force, including process, recommendations, and current outcomes. This Task Force came about following the catastrophic Edenville and Sanford Dam failures on the Tittabawassee River in May 2020.
The rapid growth of renewable power generation coupled with the early retirement of large capacity thermal generation is creating a need for additional energy storage projects. While the hydropower industry believes that pumped storage is the most viable solution, other forms of energy storage may be a better solution. Learn some basics about energy storage – including pumped storage.
