California utilities agree to host HydroVision International 2011

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District and the California Department of Water Resources have agreed to be the official host utilities for HydroVision International 2011, scheduled July 19-22, 2011, in Sacramento, Calif., USA.

The four-day event, held at the Sacramento Convention Center, will bring more than 2,500 hydropower professionals from throughout the world to the Sacramento area and is expected to generate about $4 million in direct spending for the local economy.

The conference and trade show will feature a large exhibition floor and more than 400 speakers who will discuss a wide range of topics and issues, from project planning to new innovations in hydrokinetic energy production. Also, a technical tour of the 760-MW Oroville hydroelectric project on the Feather River will be offered to conference delegates. Oroville Dam, at 770 feet high, is the tallest dam in the U.S.

The Steering Committee for HydroVision 2011 met June 25, 2010, in Sacramento to begin planning the conference. Committee members include Scott Flake, Power Generation Manager for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, and Ralph Torres, Deputy Director of the California Department of Water Resources.

Flake, Torres, and Marla Barnes, Publisher and Chief Editor of PennWell Corp.’s Hydro Group, signed the host utility agreements shortly before the meeting.
