NHA reacts to US Presidential Elections

10 November 2016

The National Hydropower Association (NHA) has congratulated President-elect Donald Trump on his victory, and has said it is hopeful that he will recognize hydropower’s current value, and the greater role it can play in revitalizing the nation’s energy and water infrastructure.

In a statement, NHA Executive Director Linda Church Ciocci said: “We look forward to working with the new administration to address hydropower’s outdated licensing process, support the need to energize non-powered dams and reinvest in existing hydropower infrastructure, and call for increasing America’s energy storage.”

 The U.S. Department of Energy’s Hydropower Vision report found that hydropower can sustainably grow by 50 GW by 2050. “As a nation, we have a choice to make about hydropower,” added Church Ciocci, “stay the course of marginal growth, or put hydropower on a new path to creating nearly 200,000 jobs and helping the nation meet its clean energy needs.
