2023 Board candidate

Pascal Radue

Chief Executive Officer, General Electric Hydro Solutions

"In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so, with present time." This sentence by Leonardo da Vinci has touched me from my first day in the hydropower industry. Using the power of water here and now, in our present, to shape the world of tomorrow. That’s how I see our joint mission. We all know, there are good reasons to believe in hydropower and in hydro storage as the technology that ensures the path to a decarbonized energy landscape. 

With all of this in mind, I want our companies – and us as their representatives – to join forces. Only together, united under the umbrella of the IHA, will we be able to exert our influence on the public to shape a regulatory framework that addresses the needs of hydropower to the same extent as all other renewable energy sources. What we need is an environment that mitigates investment risks. What we need is long-term transparency and visibility to foster investment in new projects. We cannot afford to wait: Addressing climate change means to put water at the heart of climate policy makers. This is the goal I stand up for - as CEO of GE Hydro Solutions but above all as an individual.
