Hydropower: how to avoid potential pollution sources through innovation

EU Green Week 2021, HYDROPOWER EUROPE

At the EU Green Week 2021, HYDROPOWER EUROPE is organising a Partner Event raising the issue of how to avoid potential pollution sources and mitigate environmental impacts through innovative measures.

Around this question, the roundtable will openly discuss the challenges regarding potential pollution in a narrower sense and environmental as well as social-economic impacts in a wider sense.

Looking at pollution in a narrow sense, one may recognize that this is not the main problem and challenge for hydropower deployment. Nevertheless, potential pollution sources have to be avoided in a hydropower project from the design to construction to operation to refurbishment and finally decommissioning by the timely implementation of protection and mitigation measures.

The objective of the roundtable is also to make a contribution to improving the quality and the continuity of European rivers and to shed light on good practice that should serve as the basic standard for hydropower deployment.
