Concept to Closure: Practical Steps
International Conference and Exhibition
HYDRO 2019 will bring together people from about 80 countries to focus on the most relevant topics facing the sector today. HYDRO 2019 will be the 26th in our annual series of HYDRO conferences, and the third to take place in Portugal. As always, the focus will be on global issues, especially promoting best practices and advancing hydropower development in less developed countries.
The theme “Concept to closure: Practical Steps” is inspired by the emphasis at preceding conferences on good project preparation and general planning, to encompass through site study, stakeholder involvement and corporate social multi-disciplinary planning, and careful selection of equipment.
Key topics will therefore be: planning and finance, innovative approaches to design and construction, safety and disaster risk management, modelling, selection of robust and efficient equipment, and environmental and social issues.
