JP Hydropower

The EERA Joint Programme Hydropower aims to facilitate a new role for hydropower as enabler of a clean energy system by aligning and targeting research efforts in Europe.

JP Hydropower Kick Off Meeting

The JP Hydropower is one of 18 joint research programmes of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). Thematically, the JP Hydropower spans the entire energy chain from water catchment to system integration, and it includes cross-cutting elements such as markets and market design as well as environmental impacts, effects of climate change and policy and societal issues. The JP Hydropower emphasizes collaboration with other EERA Joint Programmes and existing European and international projects. We also actively engage with the industry in order to secure relevance and impact for the hydropower sector.
