Business Development FAQs

Where can I find information about companies offering services for hydropower project developers, operators and owners?

HydroWorld.com offers a comprehensive Buyers’ Guide that features more than 1,200 companies from around the world that supply products and services for the hydroelectric industry.

The online version of the Buyers’ Guide is available year-round at HydroWorld.com as listed under the “Home” tab, and includes a number of search functions to help users find exactly what they're looking for.

In addition, once a year, we publish an annual listing of companies and the products/services they provide in the magazines exclusively to subscribers. The Hydro Review annual Buyers’ Guide (published each January) focuses specifically on companies providing hydro products and services in the United States and Canada. The HRW-Hydro Review Worldwide annual Buyers’ Guide (published each May) lists companies providing hydro products and services in countries all over the world (with the exception of the United States and Canada).

What kind of businesses and organizations are included in the Buyers’ Guide?

With more than 1,200 companies currently listed in the Buyer's Guide, products and services offered range from actuators to zebra mussel removal to everything in between. These products and services are organized into seven broad category types:

- Dams/Civil Works

- Marine Hydrokinetic

How can I have my company or organization included in the Buyers’ Guide?

Your company’s listing can be included online and in the relevant annual magazine versions free of charge.
