National Hydropower Plant Dataset, Version 1 (Update 1.1)
The National Hydropower Plant Dataset, Version 1, includes geospatial point-level locations and key characteristics of online existing hydropower plants in the United States that are currently licensed, exempt, or awaiting relicensing. These data are a subset extracted from NHAAP’s Existing Hydropower Assets (EHA) internal database, which is a cornerstone of NHAAP’s EHA effort that has supported multiple U.S. hydropower R&D research initiatives related to market acceleration, environmental impact reduction, technology-to-market activities, and climate change impact assessment. Update 1.1 is the latest version of this dataset and updates include plants accounted for based on NHAAP's latest internal EHA data update, a new field representing 8-digit hydrologic unit code drainage areas (or subbasins) associated with each plant, and U.S. states associated with each plant. For more information on NHAAP’s EHA effort, please visit the project web page.
