Title: 2017 Hydropower Market Report

Abstract

The U.S. hydropower fleet represents 7% of total electricity generation installed capacity (as of the end of 2016) and produces 6.3% of electricity (2014-2016 average). In addition, 43 pumped storage hydropower (PSH) plants with a total capacity of 21.6 GW provide 95% of utility-scale electrical energy storage in the United States. The U.S. fleet is the third largest in the world for both hydropower and PSH.
