Hydro Hall of Fame

The Hydro Hall of Fame recognizes extraordinary hydro achievement throughout the world, with a special emphasis on long-lasting facilities. Since 1995, 38 plants in the U.S. and Canada that have been operating continuously for 100 years or more have been presented with this designation. Together, this prestigious group demonstrates the long-lasting and significant contributions of hydroelectric plants, including clean renewable power, emission-free generation and reliability.


This year, the Hall of Fame is widening its doors to include plants beyond the borders of North America for the first time.

New inductees are honored at HydroVision International. For more about the event, please visit hydroevent.com.
