DoE announces up to US$32m to expand hydropower

The US Department of Energy (DoE) has announced up to US$32 million in Recovery Act funding to modernise the existing hydropower infrastructure in the USA, increase efficiency and reduce environmental impact.

The US House approves the Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act (H.R. 2454) legislation.
