E3 has the experience to make your hydropower project a success.

E3 has reviewed the development, construction, and operation of a variety of hydropower projects. We work with several highly experienced sub consultants who provide additional expertise related to hydroelectric plant design and operations and hydro resource assessments. We also draw upon the shared resources of our parent company, NAES, to provide in-depth operation and maintenance services.
