Hydropower Development Service


Public interest in sustainable energy has stimulated development of hydropower projects at existing dams and existing water supply infrastructure.  Many dam owners are interested in additional revenue to be gained from hydropower development to offset ongoing facility operation and maintenance costs.  Renewable energy tariffs and financial incentives have also stimulated a rebirth of hydropower technology.

Successful hydropower  developers use innovative and cost-effective approaches to project selection, permitting, design, equipment selection and implementation to control the many risks that they face in todays regulatory and business environment.


CAI helps owners to rapidly assess the hydropower potential of their existing facilities or greenfield sites.  We use our practical experience, analytical tools, and cost database developed on previous projects to efficiently evaluate the potential at your facilities while minimizing your up-front cost risk.  We can also explore ways to upgrade your existing hydropower facilities to increase your revenue.
