Hydropower plays an important role in many respects for our energy supply as well as for our economic and social sustainability. It provides base load power; it’s reliable and has been tested for decades as a CO2-free energy supply. On the 29th and 30th of November, the RENEXPO® INTERHYDRO will take place for the 9th time in Salzburg, which 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 8th European Conference for Hydropower RENEXPO® INTERHYDRO, which took place November 24th & 25th 2016 at Messezentrum Salzburg was the highlight of the year for the hydropower sector. Italy was the partner country and put on an impressive show as the 4th largest hydropower nation in Europe. Around 110 motivated exhibitors met around 2000 interested visitors; 300 conference attendees took home the latest findings from technology and law, business and science. The free entry to the conference for the public was an absolute hit. The consultation on hydropower from the Salzburg government and the trip to the ecological hydropower facility in Salzburg-Lehen have become a real traditions.
