Path to Clean Energy is a program of the National Hydropower Association. Despite being one of the largest generators of clean, renewable energy, sometimes hydropower gets overlooked. Yet, hydropower is essential to a reliable, carbon-free electricity grid. We encourage you to sign up for our Path to Clean Energy newsletter, and join us for our virtual events.
