Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, hydroelectric power and other electric-generating facilities are critical infrastructure. We all understand the vital need to keep electricity flowing to hospitals, other business and homes.
We held our first webcast on this topic on April 2, featuring speakers with Hydro Tasmania, Seattle City Light and the Tennessee Valley Authority. Due to the overwhelming response and so many questions from attendees, we are continuing the discussion over the next three weeks with additional hydro project owners and operators from throughout the world. They will continue to answer the industry’s questions and share how they are operating their plants and dams safely and efficiently and keeping their personnel safe.

Water is one of the most vital natural resources on the planet—and yet, its distribution is also one of the most imbalanced. Its dynamic nature means that shifts in climate and human activity can cause water security to change by the year, and even the hour. Given these realities, government agencies, hydropower operators, utility companies and other water resources organizations need the right information at the right time to effectively address the planet’s growing water resources challenges.
The RTI Center for Water Resources has more than 30 years of experience working with organizations around the globe to translate data into actionable insights to make informed, sustainable decisions and manage resources to meet critical water objectives related to hydropower, water supply, flooding, and ecosystems.
