Report looks at how states are advancing clean energy, including hydro

A new report -- Clean Energy Champions: The Importance of State Programs and Policies -- investigates how U.S. states are advancing clean energy, including hydro.

The Clean Energy States Alliance prepared this report to provide “the first-ever comprehensive review of all the significant ways in which states have advanced clean energy.”

The 130-page report highlights 31 case studies from 22 states covering a variety of state programs, such as renewable portfolio standards, rebates for purchasing solar panels, wind energy tax credits and lesser-known programs.

The report provides such hydro-related information as a case study on how Oregon has expanded opportunities for small hydropower. CESA also discusses “harnessing hydrokinetic energy from river flows,” citing the Alaska Hydrokinetic Energy Research Center. A case study provides more details on the testing being performed at this facility.

CESA is a nonprofit coalition of public agencies and organizations working together to advance clean energy.
