Sevilla, Spain - 9-11 October 2017
HYDRO 2017 Conference and Exhibition will both take place at the FIBES Congress and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Spain. The event is organized by The International Journal on Hydropower & Dams and will be accompanied by a cultural and social programme.
Spain has been, and continues to be, among Europe’s leading countries for water resources development, hydropower and pumped storage. Unevenly distributed water resources, with southern areas suffering severe droughts, led the country to develop a comprehensive water management strategy and in particular a National Hydrological Plan.
Spain’s installed hydro capacity currently stands at 19.6 GW, which represents 18 per cent of the total. Among the major Spanish hydro plants are Aldeadavila (1139 MW) and Alcantara (915 MW). The largest of the country’s 25 pumped storage plants is Cortes-La Muela (1720 MW). Hydro produces around 43 TWh/year, which is about 17 per cent of total production. Spain is a major developer of other renewable sources of energy, particularly wind and solar power
