Dear Partners and Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to communicate, after the successful along collaboration, the being part as advisory board of the Hydropower Development 2018. Already on its 5th edition, ACI’s Hydropower Development 2018 will bring together senior executives and experts from the hydropower industry, policy makers, consultants, technology innovators, engineers, investors, project developers and leading market analysts to discuss the latest challenges and developments  within the industry.

The two day event will give an insight to the industry`s latest policy evaluations and, while focusing largely on hydro power production & development in Europe, will also concentrate on updates and future forecasts on future environmental & energy trends and its impact on both, hydro power operations & market dynamics.

Hydropower Development 2018 will focus on in depth insights into the latest policy & legislation regulations, key market applications and overviews, the place of hydropower within larger context of the renewable energy arena & its relationship with the climate change dynamics. Very important aspect for this year will also be the newest technology advancements, particularly the digitalisation of hydropower plants.

The 2 Day event will start with an extensive analysis of current & future European policy objectives, particularly the Water Framework Directive, 2017 & evaluations of Natura 2000 guidance. The event will provide an in depth outlook into the key European markets, focusing largely on environmental objectives, hydropower operations, machinery maintenance and new built projects, production flexibility & technology innovations.

The participants will have a chance to take an active part in our interactive meeting to share their knowledge, experience and uncertainties. While providing a holistic outlook into the future of hydropower development in Europe, the event will focus on specific operational, technological & maintenance solutions which will allow hydro power industry to stay competitive in the renewable energy mix as a whole.
