Abstract

This Barriers and Opportunities for U.S. Hydropower Industry Engagement in Brazil and Argentina project seeks to enhance the understanding of hydropower resources, existing installations, and opportunities for U.S. company involvement in hydropower development in Brazil and Argentina. It covers conventional hydropower, pumped storage hydropower, run-of-river-hydropower, in-conduit generation, hydropower upgrades to existing facilities, and similar systems. This work recognizes that each of these countries, and even regions within the countries, have varied topography, weather, existing grid infrastructure, social, economic, and other factors, leading to relatively unique opportunities and challenges for hydropower development.
