HYDROFORUM Polish Hydropower Conferences
The HYDROFORUM Polish Hydropower Conferences from October 10-11th continue the PHC RENEXPO Poland conference cycle and the HYDROFORUM series of conferences as organised ...
... previously by the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IMP PAN). The Conferences form a platform for discussion on challenges encountered by the hydropower sector in Poland and other European countries in view of changes in its legal & administrative constraints, but also capabilities resulting from the hydropower potential, available technology and environmental requirements. Our events provide a unique opportunity in the region for exchange of opinions and information on observed trends and prospects for the sector, as well as experience on erection and operation of hydropower installations, new solutions to technical problems and the results of R&D efforts. The debate is attended by representatives of broadly conceived hydropower sector, academic institutions, central and local authorities as well as NGOs. The Conferences are addressed especially to representatives of Central-Eastern and Northern Europe, but delegates from other regions are welcome as well. The debate is usually planned for two days and carried out in Polish and English with simultaneous interpretation support. This year conference venue is located in the South Eastern Poland, in Polanczyk - close to the Solina Dam and Hydropower Plant (200 MW), at the foothills of Eastern Beskid Mountains. The number of delegates is expected to reach about 90.
The honorary patronage over HYDROFORUM 2019 has been taken over by the Polish Ministry of Energy. The conference is also to be found in the event calendar of the Inter-national Hydropower Association. The central item in the Conference Programme is the HYDROFORUM Debate, this year focused on the hydropower position and role in the national strategy documents, especially in the Polish Energy Policy 2040.
The conference package will comprise the annual subscrip-tion of Energetyka Wodna electronic version, access to the conference presentations and printed abstracts of conference contributions. Opening access to conference presentations will be consulted with the authors. The authors of selected contributions will be invited to prepare post-conference papers to be published in the peer-viewed journals Acta Energetica and Transactions of the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery. The invitations will be consulted with the Conference Scientific Committee. The papers addressed to a broader circle of readers will be published by the Energetyka Wodna quarterly basing on the recommendation issued by the Organising Committee.
