The PennWell Corporation has acquired a pair of online databases from Colorado-based Energy Central that have relevance for hydroelectric project owners and operators.
The first -- GenerationHub -- was launched in March 2012 and includes detailed information, statistics and data on more than 6,600 conventional and renewable power plants and their operations in the United States.
GenerationHub's database is searchable and sortable, and includes articles, source documents and maps for more than 550 hydropower projects.
Meanwhile, TransmissionHub was launched in October 2011 and includes detailed profiles of more than 658 transmission projects.
"These electric power databases and intelligence services provide an exceptional fit with PennWell's growing suite of data and information products," President and CEO Robert F. Biolchini said.
The PennWell Corporation is based in Tulsa, Okla., and publishes Hydro World and HRW-Hydro Review Worldwide magazines. PennWell also produces HydroVision International, HydroVision Russia, HydroVision India and other conferences and events related to the hydroelectric industry.
