WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Monday, April 16, Assistant Secretary of the Interior - Water and Science Anne Castle is expected to release a progress report on strategies to develop new U.S. hydropower generation at the National Hydropower Association Conference at the Capital Hilton.

The report highlights the collaborative work of the Department of the Interior, the Department of the Army, and the Department of Energy to implement a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) among the agencies signed in March 2010 to advance development of clean, reliable, cost-effective and sustainable hydropower generation as part of President Obama's comprehensive energy strategy.

The two-year progress report details accomplishments toward achieving 13 high-level goals named in the MOU and 17 specific action items for helping to meet those goals. Collaboration and partnerships with other federal agencies, the hydropower industry, the research community, and numerous stakeholders, have helped these agencies succeed in their efforts.
