NHA Waterpower Innovation Council Meeting

How is waterpower utilizing technology and innovation to support a clean energy future?
Those working for NHA member companies are invited to join the NHA Waterpower Innovation Council meeting to hear from the U.S. Department of Energy Water Power Technologies Office’s Tim Welch and Kathryn Nunnelley Jackson on DOE interests in powering existing dams, innovative PSH technologies, fish passage…and more.
Provide your input as the DOE reimagines the Hydropower Vision’s technology goals for a clean energy path by 2050, led by the Hydropower Foundation’s Linda Church Ciocci and WIC Chair, Bo Hadjerioua.
Share long-term challenges that your facility is facing with WIC Vice-Chair, Connor Tinen — could solutions be within our grasp sooner than we think?
