HYDROPOWER-EUROPE is a project selected by European Commission after the call H2020 LC-SC3-CC-4-2018, whose the scope is “bringing together stakeholders of the hydropower sector in a forum” to develop a roadmap of research and innovation for new hydropower technologies and innovative mitigation measures. The International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) leads the project. The core partners of the consortium are spanning the whole value chain, they are: European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE), European Renewable Energies Federation (EREF), Association of European Renewable Energy Research Centres (EUREC), International Hydropower Association (IHA), Samui France SARL (SAMUI), VGB PowerTech e.V. (VGB) and ZABALA Brussels SPRL (ZABALA). HYDROPOWER-EUROPE has 3 years to achieve this goal (from October 2018 to September 2021). The relevant stakeholders will be consulted online and through regional, European and international workshops by the networks of the consortium. The consultation process is based on three loops of consultation activity. The first loop will initiate the consultation and the first draft of Research and Innovation Agenda completed with initial consultation outputs. The second loop of consultation is on synthesis of the current status of technology and required priorities. The last loop of consultation will focuse on drafts of the Research and Innovation Agenda and the Technology Roadmap.
