Background/Key messages:
Hydropower contributes significantly to power generation in the European Union: more than 50% of power produced from renewable energy source comes from hydropower stations.

However, there currently is not a platform at the European level for the entire European hydropower sector to meet and network on a yearly basis.

Description and aim of the event:
On the border of Eastern and Western Europe, the RENEXPO® INTERHYDRO in Salzburg, is the number 1 meeting point for the hydropower industry in Europe.

The RENEXPO® INTERHYDRO is increasingly expanding towards Eastern Europe and will be offering Eastern European associations and companies their own platform for the first time with the Eastern European Hydropower Forum.

The aim of the conference is to show a wide range of interested parties the development of hydropower in Eastern and Southeastern European countries, to maintain existing contacts, and establish new ones.

Content:
Speakers from various European countries will report on the development of the hydropower sector in their counties, best practice examples and the latest innovations. In addition, you will discuss common tasks and challenges in the further advancement of hydropower.
