Anton Schleiss at the IAHR webinar series

This webinar led by the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) belongs to a series featuring young professionals thus recognising the effort of young professionals in the sector while promoting the collaboration and dissemination of their work.

This particular one focused on Research, Policy and Sustainable Opportunities and navigated the complexities of the hydropower sector within the enegy system, and its role in EU directives such as the Water Framework Directive and the Renewable Energy Directive, also known as "REPowerEU". Achieving a sustainable hydropower requires a careful balance between electricity generation, social benefits and the impact on ecosystems and biodiversity which has brought many debates among stakeholders in the hydropower value chain.

Our colleague from ICOLD, Dr Anton Schleiss, was invited to chair the the roundtable discussion that included: 

    • Mr Francisco Pinto, Univeristy of Porto, Portugal
    • Mr Emanuele Quaranta, EC Joint Research Centre
    • Ms Debbie Gray, International Hydropower Association (IHA)
    • Mr Daniel Valero, Karlsruhe Insitute of  Technology (KIT), Germany
