Hydropower R&D Needs: Industry and the Environment

This session will be an interactive opportunity to discuss what research, development, and demonstration is needed across sectors to improve the environmental performance of existing and new hydropower.

Join to hear a preliminary report-out from a summit held at the end of April attended by representatives from government resource agencies, industry, and environmental NGOs.
Take the opportunity to add your needs to a growing and soon-to-be-prioritized list.

Topics under consideration include:
• Testing needs and centers
• Fish passage: biological and environmental information needs and advancing technologies
• Water availability and quality: past, present, and future
• New approaches to environmental data: sensors, A.I., and real-time monitoring
