Inside the Edition: Investment opportunities in hydropower plants

Although wind and solar are today’s poster children for renewable energy, hydropower has been around much longer and boasts plants that have been operating reliably for more than 100 years, some of them with original equipment. What’s more, it can offer high rates of return, with most new hydropower being built today serving emerging markets with relatively high electricity prices and power demand growing in excess of 5 percent annually, 10 times the projected U.S. growth rate. Greg Morris, a principal at GLM Engineering, walks us through the opportunities. (08/2017)
