Hydropower sector technical innovations and current challenges in the industry as well as energy storage and water-ecological aspects, economic viability, direct marketing and e-mobility are among the subjects to be addressed at Renexpo-Interhydro, a conference scheduled for later this year, on November 29 and 30, in Salzburg.
Producing more than 342 TWh per year, around 35.5 percent of the electricity generated by renewable energy sources, the hydropower sector is significantly contributing to achieving the EU target of 34 percent of electricity generation from renewable energy sources by 2020.
Hydropower is not only a reliable, climate-friendly and very efficient renewable energy source, but also Europe’s frontrunner in the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources, playing a promising and multifunctional role as an enabler of the energy transition, the event’s organizers stressed.
The trade fair and conference in Salzburg promises to offer a unique platform for presentations and knowledge exchange as well the opportunity to create new contacts.
Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in an excursion to the Lehen hydroelectric power station.
The Renexpo-Interhydro event will cater to hydropower sector figures with trading and industrial interests, authorities, municipalities, as well as universities and academic institutions from all over the world.
Over 125 exhibitors, 500 congress attendees, and 2,500 visitors are expected.
