The 2022 Hydropower Conference will be focused on the past, present and future of hydropower. CEATI is seeking presentations addressing the following topics:

1. The Past – Lessons Learned and the Changes that Resulted:

  • Lessons learned from past incidents and implications today – gleaning new information 5 to 10 years later

  • The Influence of past incidents on current hydropower owner and operator practices
  • Identifying past design standards and operational requirements that have shaped hydro infrastructure

2. The Present – Current Strategies:

  • Aging infrastructure and risk factors
  • Planning for end of life or not – decommissioning vs. rehabilitation and life extension
  • Cost saving requirements for operating and maintaining hydropower infrastructure
  • Current operational constraints and revenue models and their impact on design strategies
  • Balancing the use of shared watersheds and approaches for meeting multiple water use requirements

3. The Future – Ensuring Success Moving Forward:

  • Adapting assets to new operational constraints and changing business strategies
  • Increasing value in hydro generation
  • Environmentally acceptable technology solutions
  • Integrating intermittent renewable energy into existing hydro operations
  • Improved forecasting tools for renewable generation and their use for reducing uncertainty
