Low Impact Hydropower Institute (LIHI) and Renewable Energy Credit (REC) certifications for new and existing hydrpower projects.
The Essex Partnership is providing engineering and regulatory assistance to a mid-sized American manufacturing company to develop a low impact hydropower facility. Once operational the project will displace approximately 30% of their current annual electrical demand with clean, renewable and economic energy produced on-site. Essex completed an initial evaluation of the site and then helped [...]
The Essex Partnership managed internal and external communications for NU’s Green Team during the development of the “Northern Solutions” initiative and the concept for a high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission project with Hydro-Quebec.
The Essex Partnership conducted feasibility and licensing studies for a proposed 1 – 2 MW hydroelectric development on the Quinebaug River in northeastern Connecticut.
In 2008 Essex performed a reconnaissance level condition assessment on several existing generation facilities in northern New England. The study also included preliminary assessment of options for adding capacity and transmission support (through upgrades or new development) at several strategic locations.
