Low-land hydropower: theory and practice

20 September 2018 - 07:00

Low-land hydropower

Go directly to registration

Renewable energy from water is often considered infeasible in flat, low-land regions. However, there are plenty of opportunities to tap into the power produced by rivers, waves and tides. On this day we bring together the practical and the academic world. Join us on this day-long seminar to:

  • Theory: What are current knowledge gaps?
  • Practical: How much energy can be won from low-head solutions?
  • Frontiers: New technologies, on-going research

Registration Open: August 13, 2018
Registration deadline: September 13, 2018 (Registration after deadline still possible, but seat on bus not guaranteed!)
Themeday: September 20, 2018

Site visit

There will be a site visit to the two plants introduced by the 2nd and 3rd speaker. We have arranged a bus to take people from the main venue (IHE Delft) to the site visits and back. The busride will take approximately 1.5 hours. On the way back to Delft, we will make a stop at NS station Zaltbommel.


The morning program will take place at IHE Delft. Directions can be found here.
