Hydropower

Opportunities to generate electricity exists in our natural waterbodies as well as in our water supply/distribution systems.  Natural waterbodies with high volume of flow and/or high head differential provide good opportunities for low-head and run-of-river type hydro electricity generation.  Hydraulic energy recovery at reservoirs, outfalls and pressure reducing valve stations can be cost effective when pump-as-turbine strategies are applied.  Associated Engineering can provide the full range of services required to study, optimize, develop, permit and engineer small hydropower projects.
