The event will focus on the general conditions and current trends in hydropower, as well as economic efficiency and ecological aspects. This is Europe’s meeting point for hydropower and will again offer a unique platform for presentations, knowledge exchange, and sharing as well the opportunity to create new contacts. The RENEXPO® INTERHYDRO addresses those active in the hydropower, from trade and industry, authorities and municipalities, politics and science, as well as universities and academic institutions from all over Europe. The fact that the Czech Republic is a partner country and Africa is a partner continent as well as the addition of the 1st Eastern European Hydropower Forum demonstrates the further internationalization of the event. The European Hydropower Association Meeting is also a very important event for the Congress Advisory Board (which is made up of international members), and it will also take place this year.
