As more battery storage facilities come online across the country, hydropower projects are being evaluated for the opportunities to pair with battery storage in different ways. Conservation organizations, federal laboratories, and the hydropower industry are all investigating this potential. Hear from Andy Fisk of the Connecticut River Conservancy and Jack West of Alabama Rives Alliance about their organizations’ advocacy efforts on the Connecticut and Tallapoosa Rivers, and learn how pairing these energy production and storage technologies may allow for better run-of-river operation as well as how this pairing may mitigate for hydro peaking.
