Separate research teams at Michigan’s two largest universities are pursuing advances in hydroelectric research they hope will have both local and global impacts.
A series of six small hydroelectric projects along the Muskingum River in southeastern Ohio point to hydropower’s potential as a robust, if underused, energy source for the state, supporters say.
When residents turn on the lights in the A-Mill Artist Lofts overlooking the Mississippi River in Minneapolis next year, some of their electricity will be generated just a few floors below them.
Two representatives of a Manitoba tribe spoke to Minnesota legislators in opposition to proposed legislation allowing utilities to count new hydropower projects toward meeting their renewable energy goals.
Iowa is firmly established as a national leader in biofuels and wind energy. Could the state take a similar leadership role on hydropower?
More than five years after Missouri residents approved a renewable-energy standard, very little has changed about the state’s power supply.
A Boston company says it is close to reopening a hydropower plant at an Indiana dam, part of a nascent resurgence of hydropower in the Midwest.
Several plants in the Midwest have already had to take action in response to water-related conditions. Others must monitor conditions carefully to avoid being left high and dry.
Faced with flat electricity demand, cheap natural gas, and an expiring federal tax credit, the wind industry could use a superhero right about now. Could an imaginative kid with a cape and a helicopter helmet help?
A Minneapolis startup hopes to tap the power of river currents — at costs competitive with existing generation — with a revolutionary new low-impact turbine design.
