IEA Hydropower Agreement

Overview of Achievements

What did the IEA Hydropower Agreement achieve during its first three phases?

The IEA Hydropower Implementing Agreement is now in its 4th Phase (2010 - 2015). Since its inception it has focused on meaningful activities to facilitate worldwide recognition of hydropower as a well-established and socially desirable energy technology, and to advance the development of new hydropower and the modernisation of existing hydropower.

It has done this through a range of research initiatives. Click on the links below to view details of these or view a presentation on the Agreement here.

Phase 1 - 1995-2000

The four original Annexes set up during the Hydropower Agreement's first phase, produced 19 technical reports and data bases, most of which are intended for use by professionals in their respective fields. Three of the Annexes completed their tasks during Phase I. One Annex, Small Scale Hydropower, continued to facilitate the development of new small hydro projects through its international web-based database.

Phase 2 - 2000-2005

In Phase 2, three new Annexes were formed. The focus on education and training continued in Annex VII, which demonstrated the potentials and strengths of a learning management system in web-based training and exchange of information. A Public Awareness task force, Annex VI, set up the first ieahydro.org website to promote the work of the Implementing Agreement, and to offer resources for hydro professionals and non-professionals. It also produced two major documents on Hydropower Development. Another team, Annex VIII, led by Japan, developed an extensive database of hydropower success stories, in design, operation and mitigation. Annex VIII completed its work early in Phase 3, in 2006.
