The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a new policy on establishing licensing terms for hydroelectric projects located at non-federal dams. FERC issued the policy on Oct. 19, which establishes a year default license term for original and new licenses under FERC jurisdiction.

A license is a regulatory document that permits the dam owner to use public waters for energy generation. It specifies the conditions for construction, operation, and maintenance of the project. When final, a license is enforceable by FERC or the U.S. District Court through fines or injunction.

What is Included in the "Project". FERC licenses a “complete unit of development.” [1] This consists of all dams, reservoirs, other engineered structures, as well as property rights in lands and waters as necessary for construction, operation, and maintenance of a project.

Under Clean Water Act (CWA) SectionFERC may license a hydropower project only if the State where the project discharges certifies that the project will comply with applicable water quality standards.

FERC must include in the license any conditions the State requires in order to certify the project. The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued a final rule establishing an expedited licensing process for original hydropower licenses for certain qualifying facilities at existing non-powered dams and for closed-loop pumped storage projects.

The rule is part of the commission’s implementation of the America’s Water Infrastructure Act and seeks to ensure a final licensing. A FERC license is the primary regulatory document that authorizes the use of public waters for electricity generation, and is required for projects located in state and off-shore federal waters.

It specifies the conditions and legal responsibilities for construction, operation, and maintenance of the project.
