The industrial revolution in New England was powered by small hydropower. That legacy continues today at many operational sites throughout the region which produce clean, renewable electricity to support all aspects of modern life. Developing and operating a small hydroelectric project comes with a unique set of challenges and requires skills in many different disciplines. This EBC program brings together a number of professionals with practical experience in a variety of the areas relevant to any small hydroelectric project. Speakers will discuss their experiences with developing, designing, licensing, and operating small hydroelectric projects around New England. Important environmental issues related to hydropower at all scales will also be discussed.
