With its large potential for renewable and low-carbon energy potential worldwide, hydropower and hydro infrastructure has been back on the development agenda for years but still suffers from a significant image problem.

Make hydropower great again!
The hydropower sector receives little recognition for the many societal  and non-energy benefits of hydro, such as, flood management, water supply, irrigation, reservoir storage,  local livelihood support and recreation.

 In our Hydropower Norway 2017 forum we ask:

-          How can the hydropower sector overcome its image challenge?

-          How can we quantify the many non-energy benefits of hydropower?

-          How can developers create viable projects that benefit local communities and developers?
