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.

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.
