Low-land hydropower: theory and practice

Theme days
Thursday, 20 September 09:00
Westvest 7
2611 AX Delft, Netherlands

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 (including site visit!) to:

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