Increasing the Value of Hydropower Through Increased Flexibility

We have now received a new date for the cancelled HydroFlex workshop previously scheduled this spring. The workshop is rescheduled for the 22nd of October. More information, an updated agenda, and link for registration will be posted HERE as we get closer to the event.

During this workshop, hosted by the Swedish Hydropower Center, SVC, and Hydroflex, researchers will present the latest results from the HydroFlex. The project aims towards scientific and technological solutions that enable hydropower to operate with high flexibility in order to utilize full power and storage capabilities.

HydroFlex will present its progress towards creating an environmental, social and technical basis for successful future industrial developments addressing key bottlenecks of hydropower units that limits their flexibility. During the workshop the future of Norwegian and Swedish hydropower in the European energy system will be discussed based on the following topics:

  • Future flexibility requirements
  • Flexibility of turbines
  • Flexibility of the generator and converter
  • Environmental impacts and their mitigation
