New hydro technology developed for mountainous regions
07 March, 2022
An international team of researchers has developed new hydropower technology based on electric trucks that could provide a flexible solution for electricity generation in mountainous regions.
Key to reliable renewables
10 December, 2021
Decarbonisation of the global energy system is key to tackling climate change. However, without sufficient long duration energy storage to provide reliability for intermittent renewables such as wind and solar power, the success of the clean energy transition could be at risk. As the International Forum on Pumped Storage Hydropower highlights, pumped storage has an increasingly important role to play in the years ahead. Suzanne Pritchard reports

New report explores hydro’s role in delivering a renewable and flexible power system
Mini submersible robot successfully inspects NYPA power transformer
28 January, 2020
The New York Power Authority (NYPA) has announced it has successfully piloted a robotic technology that can navigate inside a power transformer to effectively identify any operational issues while reducing unplanned down time and reducing risk to personnel.
Technologies selected to receive US DOE funds
04 November, 2019
Technologies that could help advance the marine and hydrokinetics industry and increase hydropower’s ability to serve as a flexible grid resource are set to benefit from up to $24.9 million in funding from the US Department of Energy (DOE), with the department announcing its selections for the funds at the end of October.
The modern dam engineer
15 February, 2018
Like many industries, the dam industry is influenced by both internal and external factors which can prompt change. IWP&DC was interested in finding out if such elements have affected the engineer’s working life when inspecting dams. We asked members of the industry for their own thoughts about the role of the modern dam engineer: Has this changed in recent years? Are engineers faced with increased challenges? And will this role continue to evolve?
A fair share: sharing the waters of multipurpose reservoirs
19 April, 2016
The multipurpose functions of reservoirs can create competition and conflict, prompting an increasing need for wise stewardship of global water resources. Sharing the water uses of multipurpose hydropower reservoirs is now the focal point of a framework recently produced by Electricite de France and the World Water Council. Suzanne Pritchard reports.
There is no other industry like it
14 April, 2015
For almost 24 years the same executive director has served at the National Hydropower Association (NHA) in the US. It is rare for one individual to be at the helm of any successful organisation for such a length of time, and it is indeed even rarer for that individual to be a woman. Suzanne Pritchard spoke with Linda Church Ciocci from the NHA about her vast experience of working in the hydropower industry.
