HydroVision pre-conference briefing covers hydro-related greenhouse gas issues

A briefing addressing important issues related to hydropower and greenhouse gas emissions is among the events offered in advance of the upcoming HydroVision International Conference and Exhibition in North Carolina. Speakers for the briefing represent several facets of the hydropower industry.

HydroVision International, the year's largest gathering of hydropower professionals, is planned for July 27-30, 2010, at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.

The "Hydro Greenhouse Gas Briefing," organized by the International Hydropower Association, is scheduled for July 26. In this strategic briefing, the IHA will present the UNESCO/IHA GHG Measurement Guidelines for Freshwater Reservoirs. These guidelines, developed through a multi-year project engaging scientific institutions worldwide, are presented as the standard on how greenhouse gas emissions should be measured in the future.

Speakers for the briefing include: 
Alain Tremblay, Hydro Quebec
Joel Goldenfum, IHA
Doug Dixon, EPRI
Jennifer Mosher, ORNL

The "Hydro Greenhouse Gas Briefing" event is intended to empower managers and decision makers by sharing a logical path forward for the sector, which will require greenhouse gas measurements being undertaken to a uniform standard and quality, to come up with a consolidated and representative global status of the climate footprint of hydropower. A copy of the UNESCO/IHA GHG Measurement Guidelines for Freshwater Reservoirs is included with participation in the course.

Workshops, seminars and other events focusing on many aspects of hydropower kick off in advance of  HydroVision International.

To begin the week's hydropower activities, take advantage of organizational meetings, briefings and other activities offered in addition to the conference agenda.
