Waterpower Week in Washington is home to the 2017 National Hydropower Association annual conference, and conference attendees are eligible to earn 14 professional development hour credits if registered to any of the three conference events.
Scheduled for May 1-3 at the Capital Hilton Hotel, Waterpower Week in Washington features three events under one roof: NHA annual conference, International Marine Renewable Energy Conference (IMREC) and the Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS).
This is the third year IMREC and METS are co-located with conference.
This is also the perfect opportunity for you to increase your hours of hydro industry professional development. Instructions on how to access the official certificate of completion will automatically be emailed to all attendees following the NHA annual conference.
Some of the scheduled sessions and events include the following:
- Plenary Session: Advancing a New Vision for Waterpower;
- Session: 2017 Legislative Outlook — New Congress — New Opportunity;
- Session: Hydropower — Meeting at the Intersection of the Energy-Water Nexus;
- Session: Cybersecurity;
- Session: 50 GW by 2050 — Communicating the Vision and How to Make the It Work for You; and
- Event: NHA Past Presidents’ Legacy Scholarship Fund Silent Auction.
During three days of informative seminars, informational meetings and structured social events, attendees have the opportunity to both share their great knowledge and grow as they learn the latest information within the hydroelectric power industry.
Hydroelectric project owners, operators, scientists, academia, financiers/insurers and Washington D.C.-based government officials signify a few examples of who will attend NHA’s annual event.
Past attendees say networking is one of the most important benefits gained from their personal interaction with industry leaders and the concentration of people who work at all levels of decision-making in the hydroelectric policy-making process.
