PÖYRY POINT OF VIEW REPORT / 13 Mar 2015
Can technology model the future of Hydropower?
The International Energy Agency predicts hydropower capacity doubling to 2000 GW by 2050 and, whilst the opportunities are great, development of hydropower is undoubtedly posed with complex challenges and risks.
Nature’s increasing unpredictability presents unique challenges in generating renewable energy, profitably. In this latest Point of View report, Pöyry explores how technological innovation is breaking new ground in responding to these challenges.
Using case studies from Asia, Europe and Africa, we explore how short, medium and long term modelling offers the best possible path forward, improving resource efficiency and return on investment.
