Continuing the Conversation: Hydropower and COVID-19

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.
