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.
The event is an open debate, preceded by short presentations by the organizers (Mário Franca and Miroslav Marence) and invited participants who are key players in the hydropower industry.
