Workshop - a catalyst for clean energy TRANSITION

HYDROPOWER-EUROPE Brussels Workshop A CATALYST FOR CLEAN ENERGY TRANSITIONWorkshop - Answering technical, environmental, and social challenges for hydropower as a catalyst for the clean energy transition in Europe

Hydropower workshop – a catalyst for clean energy TRANSITION

12-13 October 2020

This workshop is an online only event. Workshop information will be updated regularly.

Thanks to its storage capacity and the flexibility it can introduce in the energy system, hydropower can be a catalyst for the clean energy transition in Europe. However, in order to fulfill its potential, hydropower needs to face a unique set of policy, environmental, societal, technological and market challenges. The hydropower sector needs to become more cost competitive and find novel approaches to future development in accordance with environmental and social demand.

The HYDROPOWER EUROPE (HPE) project is built on the ambition to achieve a Research and Innovation Agenda (RIA) and a Strategic Industry Roadmap (SIR) for the hydropower sector, based on the synthesis of technical fora and transparent public debates through a forum that gathers all relevant stakeholders of the hydropower sector. Through a detailed consultation process (expert workshops, online consultations, regional workshops), HYDROPOWER EUROPE already collected views and inputs from a wide range of stakeholders.

Who is the Workshop For?

The Brussels workshop is the last step of the consultation process and aims to bring together EU policy-makers, hydropower industry and civil society organisations to discuss key points and preliminary conclusions of the draft HPE documents. This workshop will thus allow participants to share different opinions on policy and regulatory issues, technical challenges, as well as environmental and social issues in order to provide concerted recommendations on hydropower policy framework, investment priorities, or urgent environmental and social measures to mitigate the hydropower impact.

The participation in the Brussels workshop is free of charge.
