Text of 2013 - Hydropower & Dams International .2013 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION 7 to 9...

  • According to the International Energy Agency, hydro capacity worldwide could double, to almost 2000 GW, by 2050.Pumped-storage capacity is to increase by a factor of 3 to 5, especially in Europe, Asia and North America.

    The African Union is encouraging the implementation of major new hydro projects and encouraging cross-border energy mar-kets, which will harness more of the enormous potential of that region, and enhance socio-economic development in some of the

    poorest parts of the world.

    Full support of the IFIs, development agencies, professional associations and national governments is now firmlybehind hydropower, with widespread recognition of the multiple benefits that carefully planned projects can bring.

    It is timely for the world hydropower community to be meeting next year in Austria, one of the pioneering countries of Europe forlarge and small hydro development. The country has much valuable experience to share, an active programme of developmentunder way, a vigorous hydropower industry, and national and regional utilities firmly committed to hydro and pumped-storage.

    If you are active in any aspect of the hydro profession, join us in Innsbruck for three days of constructive discussions,and play a role in world hydropower development.

    PROGRAMME

  • The annual conferences organized by Hydropower & Dams are the worlds most international eventsheld in Europe for the hydropower profession. HYDRO 2013 will be the 20th in the current series of international events taking place in Europe.Generally around 1300-1500 delegates participate, representing about 85 countries. Emphasis is on theadvancement of carefully planned hydro schemes, in the less developed countries, upgrading,retrofitting and new-build in other parts of the world, and many emerging issues such as adaptationto climate change. Tracks of sessions, panel discussions and workshops cover technical, financial,economic, environmental and social aspects of hydropower. Interactive discussion is encouraged.

    The Aqua~Media Hydro Events

    AMI Hydropower FoundationThe AMI Hydropower Foundation was created in 2007 to assist the participation of delegates from the less developed countries to our annualHydro Conferences. Revenue from each years conference is transferred into the Foundation, and additional contributions are received from

    companies and individuals in the profession. This is an independent charitable foundation, governed by a board of international trustees. If youor your company would like to co-sponsor participants from one of the less developed countries, you can find more details about the

    Foundation on our website: www.hydropower-dams.com

    Innsbruck, the capital of the Tyrol in western Austria and known as the Hydropower heart of the Alps, promises to provide delegates to HYDRO 2013with a spectacular venue, conveniently situated in the centre of Europe. The event will take place in the convention centre, Congress Innsbruck,which was winner of the Best Congress Centre 2001 and 2005 AIPC Apex Award.

    Many arriving by air will travel through the Austrian capital Vienna. Innsbruck airport also has direct links with Amsterdam, Berlin, Bristol, Copenhagen, Dsseldorf, Frankfurt, Graz, Liverpool, London, Moscow, Rotterdam, and St Petersburg. As a result of its central location in theheart of Europe, Innsbruck is also easily accessible by rail or road from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia.

    Austria maintains a strong hydro legacy with hydro plants, dating back to the first half of the 20th Century, and more than 150 plants larger than10 MW are now in operation, as well as many more mini hydro schemes. Around 60 per cent of electricity production comes from hydropower andan extensive period of refurbishment and development of new schemes is now underway, with TIWAG (Tiroler Wasserkraft) leading, with projectssuch as Khtai pumped storage (140 MW) and Kaunertal (900 MW) on the drawing board. In total, TIWAG intends to increase hydro generationby about 800 GWh/year, and add supplementary pumped-storage capacity of up to 1000 MW.

    Austrias national utility Verbund, one of the leading hydropower producers in Europe is currently operating 123 hydro plants in Austria andBavaria, Germany, with a total capacity of 7400 MW. In Austria, Verbund is currently planning and constructing hydro plants (both pumpedstorage and run-of-river), which will have a total capacity of more than 2000 MW, and will add more than 1200 GWh of annual production.

    HYDRO 2013 has been strongly welcomed by: the Board of Verbund Austrian Hydro, the Governor of the Tyrol, the Board of TIWAG, the Mayoressof Innsbruck, the Presidents of the Austrian and German National Committees on Large Dams, the University of Innsbruck, and major companiesin the local hydro industry such as Andritz. International visitors are assured the very best of Austrian hospitality next year.
