Relicensing/Renewal and Coordinated Consultation

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Waterpower '85


A project which has been constructed and operating for a number of years offers a substantial set of empirical data for assessing how - and by whom - the project should be continued in the future. In this context, it is especially important to examine the specific criteria which offer the best opportunity for securing project renewal rights. The FERC so far has identified the following issues of importance in relicensing cases: comparative economic impacts, power production, applicants' track records, anti-competitive considerations, flood control, fish and wildlife, and recreational facilities. Developers of such projects should apply an interdisciplinary approach to examine the factors and issues which offer the best opportunity for improving upon the existing project.
