Welcome

The Low Impact Hydropower Institute (LIHI) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reducing the impacts of hydropower generation through the certification of hydropower projects that have avoided or reduced their environmental impacts pursuant to the Low Impact Hydropower Institute’s criteria.


The LIHI Governing Board has approved the release of a draft revision to the Certification Criteria.  The public comment period closed on October 1, 2014.  Please read more HERE.


For a recent presentation on the LIHI program and the role in green markets, please watch Low Impact Hydropower, a Pathway to Green Markets from Center for Resource Solutions on Vimeo.
