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.

DutchDubai // The Interconnection of Water, Energy and Food presented at the Dutch Pavilion at the Expo 2020 in Dubai, UAE

The Dutch pavilion in the World Expo, hosted by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in 2020, will focus on the interconnection of water, energy and food. As the second-largest exporter of agricultural products in the world, the Netherlands wants to support collaboration as well as minimising the footprint of our interactive ecosystem by building the pavilion with local resources and locally rented building materials.
