Viers, Joshua H., Hydropower Relicensing and Climate Change. Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) 47(4) . FERC has to make decisions about whether to grant a license to private and municipal entities to construct and operate a hydropower facility on public waters (licensing) or to reissue an operating licenses on existing projects (relicensing, which makes up Cited by: 1.

New legislation limiting the licensing timeperiod for new and existing hydropower dams also may serve as a tool for encouraging rehabilitation, allowing for regular reviews of safety and risk of.   Projects propose new reservoirs, cycling water from Nevada’s desert lakes, with hopes of selling power to LA During days when solar panels feed more energy into the grid than utilities want to buy, the projects would use the excess power to pump water from Walker Lake or Pyramid Lake into the newly constructed reservoirs. In regulated rivers, relicensing of hydropower projects can provide an opportunity to change flow regimes and reduce negative effects on sensitive aquatic biota. The volume of flow, timing and ramping rate of spring spills, and magnitude of aseasonal pulsed flows have potentially negative effects on the early life stages of amphibians, such as. economic modeling of relicensing and decommissioning options for the klamath basin hydroelectric project prepared for: california energy commission in cooperation with: u.s. department of the interior prepared by: c onsultant r .

A key strategy in accomplishing OPT's mission is to establish and maintain a renewable energy technology base. The OPT works with industry, state and local governments, universities, and the DOE's national laboratories to support aggressive research and development in photovoltaic, concentrating solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower, and biomass power technologies and . Increasing hydropower electricity production constitutes a unique opportunity to mitigate climate change impacts. However, hydropower electricity production also impacts aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity through freshwater habitat alteration, water quality degradation, and land use and land use change (LULUC). Today, no operational model exists that covers any of these cause Cited by: 6. Core Elements Habitat is Key Revise the Field Office Technical Guide The state will recommend or require conditions to restore and mitigate impacts of hydropower projects. The relicensing of the projects is allowing the state and federal agencies to review the project as if it were a new one. The state will. The nation faces many complex challenges in its stewardship of natural landscape alterations over the last few hundred years have significantly changed the form and functioning of river systems. Population and economic growth have dramatically increased the competing demands for limited river-based services that are central to the growth and health .
