"The Energy Department today announced six organizations selected to receive up to $9.8 million in funding to develop innovative technologies that will reduce capital costs and deployment timelines for pumped-storage hydropower and non-powered dams. Supporting the Energy Department’s HydroNEXT initiative, these projects aim to lower costs, improve performance, and promote environmental stewardship."

"Three projects will address technologies to add power to NPDs:

Rickly Hydrological Company of Columbus, Ohio, will design and laboratory-test advanced powertrain, modular infrastructure components, and design software to simplify small hydropower development at non-powered dams. The project focuses

on a site development approach that can be applied to other hydropower technologies."
