IHA knowledge networks

As an IHA member, whether an employee of a member company or an individual member, you can participate in one of our knowledge networks.

IHA knowledge networks bring together hydropower professionals from throughout our membership to share ideas and experiences, discuss new developments and collaborate on a range of key topics for the sector.

How to participate

We currently facilitate knowledge networks across eight hydropower topics:

  • Clean energy systems
  • Climate mitigation
  • Climate resilience and adaptation
  • Communications
  • Project benefits
  • Project financing
  • Regional development
  • Water footprint

To participate in our knowledge networks, contact communications@hydropower.org and indicate which networks you would like to join.

Who can join?

Knowledge networks are open to anyone who is an employee of an IHA corporate member or an individual member of IHA.

How you benefit

The networks provide an opportunity to participate in knowledge advancement for sustainable hydropower by building and sharing solutions to common problems. 

As a network member, you will gain access to people in the global hydropower community who face similar technical and political challenges in different regions of the world.

The various collaboration activities also offer you the chance to raise your profile and advance your professional development by showcasing successful initiatives or examples of good practice to the community.

How the networks operate

Activities offered may vary between different knowledge networks. Core activities will typically include:

  • Webinars, with opportunities for members to give presentations
  • Surveys and analysis
  • Technical workshops
  • Informal gatherings at major sector events such as the World Hydropower Congress
  • Development of resources, guidelines and briefings on good practices
  • Circulation and dissemination of materials
  • Informal discussion and idea-sharing through LinkedIn groups and email
