Current Activities (2010 - 2015)

Annex IX:Hydropower Services

Objective

Annex IX has the overall aim is to enhance the understanding of: 

• the type of energy and non-energy services hydropower can provide to energy security, water security and sustainable development

• the potential consequences of providing such services for the hydropower sector in terms of required adjustments in operation, maintenance and development practices

• appropriate economic assessment methods to quantify the value of these services

• how the costs of providing multiple services are apportioned between the various stakeholders

• how regulatory frameworks, market mechanisms and business models can sustain, or hamper, the optimal deployment or development of multipurpose hydropower services

The Annex has two Tasks, organized as follows:

•  Task 1- Valuation of energy management services (power services). Task Manager - Argonne National Laboratory, USA
