Grid Reliability, Resilience, & Integration (HydroWIRES)
Project Name: IEA Annex IX
Project Team: Argonne National Laboratory (lead), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Lead Recipient Location: Lemont, Illinois
A team of experts from Argonne National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory conducted a global survey and contributed case studies that formed the foundation for a report from the International Energy Agency's (IEA) Technology Cooperation Programme on Hydropower.
The survey, which was conducted in 14 global markets, and seven case studies demonstrate that hydropower can provide short-term stability and long-term seasonal storage services to power systems around the world. This report showcases hydropower’s key role in shifting to cleaner electricity systems, lowering carbon footprints and supporting other resources such as wind and solar, and is part of IEA’s efforts to facilitate the sharing of information and best practices between countries and regions.
