Hydronet2 Project Focuses on the Future of Switzerland’s Hydropower Sector

EPFL’s Energy Centre hosted the Hydronet2 project to promote Switzerland’s position in hydropower, across national and international energy markets. The project aims to enhance hydropower plants’ design, manufacture and operation. Hydropower is Switzerland’s main source of renewable energy and contributes 56% of electricity production.

Mohamed Farhat from the Hydraulic Machines Laboratory is the project coordinator of Hydronet2, and will be making the arrangements for a concluding workshop.

The project covered several aspects including hydrodynamic, environment, electricity, and civil engineering and the aim of the final workshop is to consolidate the learning from the multidisciplinary research. The workshop also aims to provide answers from prominent experts for the hurdles facing the hydropower industry due to political, technical or environmental issues.

The Hydronet2 Final Workshop is scheduled for 2nd February 2016 at the Aula des Cèdres, 33 avenue de Cour, 1007 Lausanne. Participants are requested to register by 22nd January to attend this free workshop.
