The Hydropower Market Report (HMR) provides industry and policymakers with a quantitative baseline on the distribution, capabilities, and status of hydropower in the United States. The HMR, first published in 2015, was commissioned by the Department of Energy (DOE) to fill an existing gap in publicly available, comprehensive, and accurate data on the U.S. hydropower fleet. Updated data from 2016 and 2017 highlights trends and provides information on upgrades and capacity of existing plans, and planning and development of new hydropower projects.
