The forum HYDROPOWER EUROPE (HPE) is built on the ambition to achieve a research and innovation agenda and a strategic industry roadmap 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.
To do so, the HYDROPOWER EUROPE Consultation Platform supports the consultation process which started in early 2019. Feedback from a series of online consultation, regional and technical workshops is combined with expert analysis. This process supports the development of the HYDROPOWER EUROPE Research & Innovation Agenda (RIA) and Strategic Industry Roadmap (SIR).
Few days ago, a second stakeholder online consultation has been launched.The main focus of the second online consultation is to gather the feedback from a wide range of hydropower stakeholder on the proposed research and innovation actions listed within the two main HPE documents. This consultation is one of the last opportunities for stakeholders to provide your feedback and recommendations about the main R&I priorities for future of hydropower in Europe and about how hydropower can contribute to a successful clean energy transition.
The consultation is made of an online 20-minute long survey. To participate to the consultation, please click on the link below and register to the HPE Consultation Platform.
