IEA Hydro

The IEA Hydropower Implementing Agreement (IEA Hydro) works under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA), with a mission to “encourage through awareness, knowledge and support, the sustainable use of water resources for the development and management of hydropower”. This is achieved through a  research programme based on topics of importance to its member countries and key action items from the 2012 IEA Hydropower Roadmap.

Current work is on Small-Scale Hydropower, Hydropower Services, Renewal and Upgrading of Hydro Plants, Hydropower and the Environment, and Hydropower and Fish. IEA Hydro welcomes participation from government agencies, utilities and research organizations with an interest in undertaking collaborative research.
