Hydropower is energy created by flowing water, and is another source of renewable energy available to Iowans. The Energy Center encourages the development of hydropower facilities through the Alternate Energy Revolving Loan Program (AERLP).

Additional information on hydropower can be found at the Idaho National Engineering & Environmental laboratory’s U.S. Department of Energy Hydropower Program website.
