As precipitation and flow regimes evolve from ongoing climate change, hydropower facilities worldwide are facing operational challenges. While severe flooding has been an issue in some places, extreme droughts not anticipated by designers, planners, and operators have more often been an issue, even in facilities that are relatively young. Stark tradeoffs with other water users, including ecosystems, are one result. In the most extreme cases, turbines that are stand high and dry prompt decision makers to shift to backup energy systems, often ones that are carbon-emitting. How can we ensure that our existing and future hydropower assets remain resilient, efficient, and low carbon in an uncertain future?
