Hydropower Services

Looking for Experience in Natural Resources, Licensing, and Permitting

EA has a reputation for providing technically excellent environmental services to the hydropower industry. Since the 1980s, EA has supported more than 80 hydroelectric projects, providing our clients with a national perspective and a broad understanding of the issues facing the hydropower industry in today’s changing marketplace.

Our strong in-house staff includes scientists, engineers, planners, and regulatory specialists, who have extensive experience with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) hydropower licensing and compliance and have been involved in FERC hydropower matters for the past 30 years.

These professionals have significant technical expertise in a variety of resource areas and have conducted numerous environmental resource studies at hydropower facilities, including studies of water quality, instream flows, fish and aquatics, terrestrial resources, and recreational usage.

EA has experience using all three FERC licensing process options for hydropower projects: Integrated Licensing Process (ILP), Traditional Licensing Process (TLP), and Alternative Licensing Process (ALP). EA staff members have experience preparing FERC license applications and NEPA documents for hydropower projects, including scoping documents, EAs, and EISs.

EA staff includes trained facilitators and public outreach specialists, who are experienced at leading collaborative licensing efforts and negotiating settlement agreements.
