SWWW 2018 Event // Towards the Circularization of Hydroelectricity using the Existing Hydraulic Infrastructure

Synergistic approaches to respond to both food and energy needs and an integrated management of water are essential to respond to the WEF Nexus, in particular to attain the Sustainable Development Goals 2, 6 and 7. Installing hydropower plants in the greenfield imposes high environmental and social impacts. On the other hand, in water infrastructures the waste of energy is common. A direction for the decarbonisation of energy sources, in the context of hydroelectricity, must be the fight against this energy waste.

This event is part of the Stockholm World Water Week 2018.

The development of alternative strategies and technical solutions incorporated in existing structures, used primarily for other purposes, represents an additional and profitable solution for energy generation with low impact. However this may be hindered by the lack of a proper evaluation of the available energy, doubts about technical solutions and the lobby of the big hydropower, solar and wind power industries. The event will be an open debate, preceded by short presentations by invited participants who are key players in the hydropower industry. 

Event promoted under the auspices of the three-years program S-MultiStor.

Conference // Water Storage and Hydropower Development for Africa

The connection of energy and water is most obvious in electricity generation through hydropower. Plus dams have an important impact on the environemtn, on water availability upstream and downstream, and thus on food production and food security. The AFRICA 2019 conference will bring together industry professionals in Namibia, a country with a variety of dams, to discuss water and energy issues relevant to Africa.

Session at EGU General Assembly 2019 // Hydropower and Other Renewable Energy Sources: Integration and Planning amid the Water-Energy Nexus

The transition to a low-carbon economy and programs of nuclear power phase-out will require the development of innovative methods to integrate renewable sources of energy while minimizing the additional pressure on closely connected ecosystems. This session at the EGU General Assembly 2019 solicits contributions that describe, characterize, or model distributed renewable energy sources at different spatial and temporal scales that are relevant for the electricity systems, their interactions,...
