The California Energy Commission’s In-Conduit Hydropower Questionnaire by Matthew Swindle Nov 22, 2017 Member Submitted News Stantec, NLine Energy, NSF ERC ReNUWIT and the Water Research Foundation are conducting collaborative research for a California Energy Commission project titled “California’s In-Conduit Hydropower Implementation Guidebook: A Compendium of Resources, Best Practices, and Tools.” Water systems in California have a large untapped potential to recapture energy with in-conduit hydroelectric generation. However, despite the promise of a high in-conduit hydropower market penetration through a number of incentives over the past 10 years, the actual development of projects is below its potential in the state. The purpose of this project is to conduct a comprehensive assessment of in-conduit hydropower generation potential in California and the development of a guidebook and a business case assessment tool that assist municipal, agricultural, and industrial water purveyors with the cost effective implementation of in-conduit hydropower generation projects. The questionnaire can be found here and will also be available at NLIne Energy’s exhibit booth (#400) at ACWA’s 2017 Fall Conference & Exhibition in Anaheim. Please complete the following questionnaire by December 15th, 2017. Your input is extremely valuable for the project as the information collected will highlight the critical needs in advancing energy data management practices at water and wastewater utilities. If you have any questions about the project or the questionnaire, please contact Dr. Newsha Ajami at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (650) 724-8162.
