Hydropower in Canal Called Energy ‘Game-Changer’
"I’m ecstatic,” said Emily Morris, CEO of Emrgy Inc.“To see this first turbine installed is an incredible milestone.”
After years of careful planning and precise calculations, the first-ever use of hydropower in a shallow, slow-moving waterway in Colorado will soon be ready for business.
“We already have seven hydropower plants in our system, mostly at our dams,” said Ian Oliver, Denver Water source of supply manager. “This project is a new, sustainable way to generate energy and help offset power consumption costs.

Energy Department Awards $6.5 Million to Advance Low Environmental Impact Hydropower Technologies
Today, the Energy Department announced seven organizations selected to receive $6.5 million to advance the manufacturing and installation of low environmental impact hydropower technologies. The projects will address three technical areas: rapidly deployable civil works technologies, innovative methods and materials for hydropower construction, and powertrain components. While hydropower already supplies approximately 7% of America’s electricity and is considered the leading source of renewable energy, the nation still has significant untapped resources across the country where new hydropower generating capabilities could boost our supply of carbon-free energy.
Through this funding opportunity, the Energy Department has selected seven projects to help advance hydropower drivetrains, which transfer rotational energy from turbines to generators, and structural foundations that could significantly reduce the lifetime operating and maintenance costs and minimize environmental impacts of new hydropower projects.
