Archived Existing Hydropower Assets Data and Maps

Data

The following datasets are provisional information extracted from the 2015 Existing Hydropower Assets Database.

  • Summarized U.S. Energy Datasets: Hydropower energy-related information extracted from NHAAP's Existing Hydropower Assets Assessment and summarized to state, Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) regional (2-digit HUCs), and WBD subregional (4-digit HUCs) geospatial boundaries.
  • Non-Federal Hydropower Plants on USACE Facilities: A tabular list of existing non-Federal hydropower plants on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers facilities that have been extracted from ORNL's NHAAP Existing Hydropower Assets geospatial data layers. Data include Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) licensed or exempt hydropower projects that are currently active or have been approved for development; Attribute fields include a hydropower plant name, permit type, FERC Docket number, and state abbreviation.
  • List of U.S. Hydropower Dams: Provisional data on main hydropower dams in the United States.
