CONFERENCE: River Management and ecology organised by vgbe Energy

The joint Expert Event of vgbe energy and VÖU will bring together experts from policy, authorities, leading operators, manufacturers and suppliers, scientists, NGOs as well as further relevant stakeholders to discuss crucial issues in the fields of river management, restoration and ecology. 

Rivers are biodiversity hotspots and provide water for domestic supply, irrigation, power generation, navigation and industry as well as a range of other ecosystem services. Managing rivers to provide multiple benefits is therefore essential to water security and multiple other policy priorities. Specifically, environmental protection and nature preservation, as well as restoration, are key challenges not only for hydropower operators and industries but also for society as a whole. Being among the most environmentally and climate-friendly forms of energy generation, hydropower plays a crucial role in the energy system of today and the future. Operation and maintenance of existing plants as well as new projects can only be realized by pursuing a holistic approach, i.e. by balancing ecological, social and economic aspects and promoting sustainable use of water.
