Hydro power has traditionally been the most dominant renewable energy resource deployed worldwide. In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in deploying both novel inland hydro power – such as hydrokinetic, micro-hydro, and pumped storage, and emerging ocean power technologies – including wave, tidal, ocean current, and ocean thermal – as a part of balanced renewable energy portfolios.

Geothermal power generation has also gone through tremendous growth in recent decades with increased adoption of low-temperature engine cycles and recent developments in enhanced geothermal systems.

Navigant helps clients to identify and make appropriate hydro and geothermal power investments, securing financing and understanding what resources are available.
