ORNL has created explorers and tools for users to apply HydroSource data. These are useful for purposes such as: 

  • Locating and exploring existing hydropower plants, dams, generators, and associated project information;
  • Viewing hydrologic and environmental characteristics in relation to existing and potential hydropower development;
  • Exploring hydropower generation trends;
  • Identifying and exploring potential for new hydropower development;
  • Identifying and removing potential environmental barriers to hydropower development.
