Hydroelectric Project Licensing
We provide comprehensive hydroelectric project licensing services and we are involved in some of the most prominent hydroelectric projects, offering our clients innovative solutions to licensing challenges.
Our experts address both resource issues and project needs, while helping identify appropriate options for mitigating environmental impacts—all with the overall goal of developing project alternatives acceptable to proponents and regulatory authorities.
