Brochure title:
Science and Technology for Environmentally Sustainable Waterpower and Water Use
Description:
Waterpower is becoming an increasingly important element of our nation’s energy supply. In the western United States, hydropower provides 44 percent of the electrical generating capacity. Yet, there are environmental issues that can adversely impact energy availability and cost as well as the sustainability of water use for energy production. Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) are advancing environmental frontiers in the prediction and management of waterpower system performance, including hydropower. PNNL fisheries scientists are developing and applying the science and technologies that enable optimization of waterpower and environmental benefits in three key areas.
